Texas in October....

I got a little email yesterday that I had been hoping for:

Dear Holly,

Thank you for your application to participate in the Lance Armstrong Foundation's LIVESTRONG Summit. We are pleased to inform you that your application has been accepted, and we would like to invite you to join us as a delegate at the inaugural LIVESTRONG Summit.

So it is official, I am going to Austin, Texas in October for a long weekend (Friday-Sunday). What is the LiveSTRONG Summit?

The Lance Armstrong Foundation's inaugural LIVESTRONG Summit is a three-day event to organize, inspire and direct the efforts of cancer survivors from across the country to change the face of cancer survivorship.

The LIVESTRONG Summit is a call to action - LIVESTRONG Summit participants will develop goals and action plans to raise awareness and effect change around the needs of cancer survivors. After the LIVESTRONG Summit, participants will apply the action plans in their own communities and nationwide.

Maybe inbetween session, I can meet up with some of my fellow tri bloggers for a short run or coffee... Flatman are you near Austin?? I know Texas is pretty big (zat least that is what my friend Melanie has always told me ...) but somebody who blogs and tri's MUST live in Austin ....

MelBel, I am coming to Texas!!!!!! (Honey, We gotta talk!) ((PS.. Happy Two-Day Belated Birthday !!!!!!!!!!!)
