2 coasts ... 1 HOPE

On January 6th 2009, I will be flying out to LA and walking back to Boston, raising money for cancer research. The route I'm taking should take 5 months and cover roughly 3,800 miles. We will be filming the entire trip for an upcoming documentary.

Walking on Sunshine

Woke up. Went for a run. Had some eggs. Reflected on the events of yesterday.
Tuesday, October 21st turned out to be a great day. Just 78 short days from flying out to LA, I did the same thing I do everyday, planned to take over the world (sorry a "Pinky and the Brain" flashback). No really the day was seeming normal until I got to work. For those who don't know, I work in downtown New Bedford at the GREEN BEAN, it's a coffee house/juice/smoothie place. Anyway, Eric and I are exchanging our version of witty banter and then my phone rings.

caller: hi is Jesse there?
me: this is Jesse
caller: Hi Jesse. This is Meredith with Baby Jogger . How are you today?
me: Oh hello Meredith. I'm fine and you?
Meredith: I was just calling to let you know that the company Baby Jogger would love to sponsor your event. And I just need to confirm and address to send your SWITCHBACK HYBRID trailer/jogger to.
me: Are you kidding? That's incredible. Thank you. (proceed to give address)
Meredith: If you have any questions feel free to call. Good luck. Talk to you soon.
me: Ok. And thank you again

That may not be exactly how it went but it's really close. Long story short, we have our first sponsor, Baby Jogger . welcome aboard and thank you.
