Good evening from Maine where I’m late with the week-in-review for a good reason. Today, I participated in a ski-a-thon to raise money for Maine Adaptive Sports. My friend Holly convinced me to join her team this year and we had a blast as “Queens (and King) of the Mountain.” With more than 100 teams on the mountain over $300,000 was raised for this wonderful organization today. Wherever you are this weekend, I hope you have an equally enjoyable time.
