It's a shame and bad decision demoting Freelee and Durianrider. Was planning on going next year. Very disappointed.

Likewise, Michael, I appreciate very much what you are trying to do with the WFF and will stand ready to assist as I am able. I really enjoyed being involved and will likely be there ready to help in 2014. It is on my agenda for sure.

Many thanks and best wishes to you and yours!

Thanks for the warm greetings, Mike! (Though after watching your last video, it seems all of your greetings will be warm, in Hawaii.) It's always a pleasure to see a role model leading from the front. You certainly are inspirational for me on many levels.  

I look forward with joy to another run this year. =)

You inspire me! I hope to some day be as fast and active as you. Looking forward to running at the WFF Race, probably doing the 10k. Been mainly fruitarian for only 3 months and loving it!
