I said that I was determined to be apart of it this year and I am so glad that I was!

It was wonderful and the weather was perfect and the overall experience was exhilarating, indeed!

Emily Pennington and her mother and I had a lot of fun making up encouraging comments for the runners as they passed by!

My favorite one was when Emily said, "CLEAN UP ON MILE 9" wich was our position along the route!

I look forward to next year and Sheri Albers and the Cincinnati members did a great job in every respect!

If you see someone today without a smile, why don't you give them one of yours?

Subject: [Ohio-talk] Report on the Flying Pig BLT Station

Good morning NFB-O,

I am so proud to give this report on Sunday's Flying Pig BLT Station. The Cincinnati Chapter stepped up to provide the "grunt" work (lol) to make us the runner's favorite station of the Half Marathon! We also had representation from the Capital Chapter, Miami Valley Chapter and the At Large Chapter. A huge "thank you" goes out to each and every one of you, as our affiliate will soon receive a check for $500. I am already looking forward to next year!

Best Regards,

Sheri Albers, Vice President

The National Federation of the Blind knows that blindness is not the characteristic that defines you or your future. Every day we raise the expectations of blind people, because low expectations create obstacles between blind people and our dreams. You can live the life you want; blindness is not what holds you back.
