I am excited to say that I will be recieving a complimentary pair of Gravity Running Shoes from NEWTON Running this week as well as some training gear from OOMPH SPORTS this week. I am in the process of filing for my NFP Organization this weekend. I will call it the Helgi Olafson Foundation. I plan on setting up a few systems within the foundation to help others in need. I will also donate a large portion of incoming donations to other NFP Organizations to the Spondylitis Association of America, the IAAM, the Arthritis Foundation and more. I want to also help athletes with the desire to succeed and compete, but not enough money, get the gear that they need to perform. I would like to serve as a hub for old quality gear and have it inspected and repaired if necessary and redistributed to individuals in need. Its about fostering the growth of Endurance Sports.
I would also like to offer to speak wherever the world may take me about Ankylosing Spondylitis, and wrestling it to the ground by inspiring others with A.S. to take action by listening closely to their bodies and be honest with themselves through diet, exercise and rest, while maintaining a positive attitude.
I need a website built and I am in the process of manifesting one as soon as possible. This all needs to get set up before Portland, so I can use it to my greatest advantage.
I want to thank my Coach Rick Rubio and my friend Bri Standing for helping me out with getting this thing going. I couldn't do it without you guys. Also I would like to thank all of the readers of my blog. I am glad I get the chance to have people who matter to me actually watch this unfold. You are all great people and I am glad to have you in my network.
I hope, through the Helgi Olafson Founation, that we are able to help others with Ankylosing Spondylitis and I hope that I can be a key factor in educating the world about A.S.. Last but not least! I hope I have a shot at racing with the Pros!!
Time trials next week with Coach Rick! Swim Bike Run
