April Athlete of the Month

This month's athlete of the month was a difficult selection for me as I had a number of candidate at my disposal that I would have liked to honor with this feature.

But after pondering this for a while it was evident that I should only focus on one person in this post based on the fact that she has come a long way in so many ways that it is simply time...

Can you guess who is "APRIL's Athlete of the Month"...?

Well, it is something very dear and close to my heart... someone who has been involved with NATT since the very beginning and today continues to be very much a part of the organization holding some key positions that are guiding NATT - well now the NATIONAL BLOOD CLOT ALLIANCE - into the future.

Also, goes without saying that aside from being one of the leading member of the organization she is a FINE ATHLETE and one that can be a serious inspiration for everyone.

By now you know who I am talking about... but if you still don't know let me introduce you to APRIL's Athlete of the Month = My Lovely Wife Mrs. CLOT BUSTER or as she is known by others ELIZABETH VARGA.
Her dedication to the organization along with her discipline and commitment to her workout routines is legendary. She is without a doubt a HUGE inspiration for me to keep at it and make it happen.About two weeks ago she completed in the St. Louis Marathon and now she (and all of us in this house) is a very proud Marathon Finisher. Running the marathon was a huge challenge that she was able to take head on to complete in tremendous fashion.
Although she was never suffered from a blood clotting episode we are always concerned because she is a carrier and under the right combination of circumstances she could develop a clot.

I am very proud and honored to have the opportunity to share Mrs. Clot Buster with all of you out there. I am constantly amazed of what she can do and how far she has come. We have been together the better part of 12 years and let me tell you that I am looking forward to spend the next 50 years along side her...

Marathon Preparation Week...

Here we are at the door step of another marathon.

Mrs. Clot Buster is about to get introduced to the fraternity of the 26.2 Miles.

She is about to find out how amazing and painful it can be to finish those 26.2 Miles.

We ran together yesterday and her stride feels strong and confident.

I am looking forward to cheer her on on Sunday and I hope you follow along as well.

Heading to St. Louis on Saturday AM and Junior and I will do what we can to keep her off her feet.

We are VERY PROUD of her and look forwar to learn how it goes for her.

The first time is just very exciting.

As we do in the Clot Buster household the she is representing the NATIONAL BLOOD CLOT ALLIANCE and as such she is fundraising so that we can continue to spread the word about blood clots and blood clotting disorders.

Checkout Mrs. Clot Buster's page here >>>

I will post updates on twitter as much as I can.

Sunday is going to be a sweet day!
