On Wednesday evening my wife Jill and I along with our good friend Laura Nye went to the Winter Party of the Austin Runner's Club held at Fiddlers Hearth in Austin. What a great time that was had by all! Our good friend Clemmie Cummins sat with us and we had lots of fun visiting with everyone and enjoying a great meal. After dinner the Dick Beardsley Foundation was presented with a check for $1,000.00! In December the Austin Runners Club hosted the Decker Half Marathon and the Double Decker Marathon, and the Dick Beardsley Foundation was the beneficiary of the folks that ran the Double Decker. I thank you all from the bottom of my heart for the generous donation to the Dick Beardsley Foundation. It will be of huge benefit in helping those fighting the terrible disease of chemical dependency!
