I completed one of my sabbatical goals yesterday - running the Twin Cities Marathon. I'm so grateful to my family for all their support, and to many friends, family, colleagues, and former students who contributed to my charitable campaign. Thanks to the generosity of many people, I have raised $5,989 for Homes for our Troops. This amazing organization builds specially adapted homes for severely disabled military veterans. I'm so proud to have contributed to their incredible work. If anyone would still like to donate (just $11 more to pass $6,000!), you can do so by clicking here. Now, back to my academic goals for this sabbatical - gotta write this book!
