Made it to Austin




Universal City housed the truck and statue just outside San Antonio, they where very excited about the stop and assured us they will sport pink for our women on our three days in October. They will rally all the other outlying cities to do the same.

We just arrived here in Austin where they have us set up in a very nice hotel, they plan on having the Lance Armstrong Foundation for the festivities as well as other Cancer Organizations, they have guest speakers, snow cone machines, and even a performance by a well known singer songwriter who also is a breast cancer survivor. We are so proud of this truck and what it stands for and to have the city of Austin take notice of this truck and use it to inspire their city to get on board this campaign, is an honor.

I love all things pink and cheered when I saw this on the news. This is for an incredible cause :).

My husband just laughed at me :D

for the critics;
It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.
