Bound for Ironman World Championships!

Saturday morning the Archibalds' and Johnsons' are off to Kona! I will be updating my blog http://ironem.blogspot.com while we are out there. We arrive Oct 3rd and will be back in NC on Oct.13th. The race is Saturday October 10th and you can track my progress on-line at www.ironman.com. There will also be an article on ironman.com next week about Will and our journey over the past few months. We will have a video camera with us and I hope to put together a You Tube video to share with everyone. This way y'all can experience portions of the 140.6 miles and get a taste of the Ironman experience:) It is AMAZING.

Will continues to do really well at rehab and is also continuing to do bi-weekly acupuncture. Tomorrow he is looking forward to an appointment with his wheelchair vendor so they can fit his chair a little better and remove some unnecessary brackets that are only "slowing" him down! He has also been wheeling around for about 3 weeks now without his anti-tip (wheelie) bars- so far no falls! He is able to back himself down a 6 inch curb independently (although he does not do this when he is alone, only when has a spotter, since it is a bit risky and he is still learning these advanced wheelchair maneuvers).
