Finally, the 100 by 100 Logo !

Well, finally I made a logo to match my objective here and I'm so excited!

I will wear these shirts with great pride in all of my Ultras I run.  I like how the Alzheimer's logo is printed in the middle of the runner's chest too.  That is where I keep people afflicted with this disease - right next to my heart.  Hopefully, wearing these shirts will help spread the word that there is a huge need of support for Alzheimer's.  Here are some of the basic printed shirts I have so far!  Please, spread the word!  Look for me at the Ultra races!
