KPF is Hitting the Pavement Running in 2016


Before we begin our regularly scheduled blog post, Brent and I, as well as the rest of the Kyle Pease Foundation, would like to take a moment to offer our sincerest sympathies to Major Kim "Rooster" Rossiter, his family and the entire Ainsley's Angels of America family following the loss of their daughter and inspiration to so many, Ainsley. Ainsley left us all earlier this week and will be forever missed. Please take a moment and think of this incredible little girl and then go hug your child and all those close to you. Life is fleeting and we need to experience the joy brought to us at every possible moment. RIP, Little Angel.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Last week Brent and I kicked off our 2016 season in Augusta, GA at the Dr. Seuss is on the Loose 5 and 10 K. This of course makes me want to do the next part of the blog in Dr. Seuss type rhyming.
 
Six K-Peasey athletes ran and ran,
But did not eat Green Eggs or Ham.
They participated in the Seuss 10K
We'll save this rhyme for another day.
 
Our Augusta family really loved the fact that we traveled down there and they were absolutely the hostess with the mostest.  It was great to get our wheels back on the pavement after a couple winter months of hibernation. 
 
Next, we are gearing up for Charles Harris 10K this weekend in Atlanta, followed by one of my favorites, The Publix Half Marathon.  We have more than twenty athletes signed up so far and there is still time to get involved both either as an athlete or as a pusher.
 
This is the five year anniversary of the Kyle Pease Foundation so we have a lot of things planned for the foundation, personally and for all KPeasey athletes. We are VERY excited about everything that is going on.
 
Please let us know about races in tour area as the foundation can travel and support races around Georgia and the southern region. Where There's a Wheel;  There's a Way, I've been know to say. This helps us to involve athletes from all over and to share our message with a wider audience. We are also able to speak to schools, businesses and civic organizations, so please let us know if you have a contact we can connect with.
 
Earlier this month, Brent and I were honored at the Georgia House of Representatives by Representative Pat Gardner. The House gave us a resolution for all of our hard work with the disabled in the Atlanta area. Representative Gardner purchased a book for every member of the house. We received a standing ovation from members of the House. Quite a moment.

March is Disability Awareness month so many local schools are doing programs in March surrounding the event. As I said earlier, if your school is planning something, please let's discuss bringing Brent and I to the school.

Lastly, don't wait to sign up for the Jake Vinson Family Grant. The application can be found on our newly designed website at www.kylepeasefoundation.org.

KPF Hitting the Ground Running in 2016

Happy New Year and welcome to the 2016 kickoff of the Kyle Pease blog. We have so many incredibly exciting things on tap this year that I'm not even sure where to begin. 

We will be hitting the ground running this week as Brent and I will be speaking in Atlantic City, NJ and will be making a couple stops in the Philly area. Seems only fitting that the Pease Brothers speak in the City of Brotherly Love.  Our speaking topic will be New Beginnings focusing on the NY City Marathon and how we were forced to change our game plan and execute a new plan from scratch. In sport, business or every day life this is a valuable lesson to learn from. 

We are also gearing up for another speech on my birthday..February 19  speaking at a local organization. Nothing is a better birthday gift for me than sharing our message to new audiences. In fact, if you would like us to speak at your business, school or civic organization, please let us know. 

We recently spoke and signed our book at TriCoach Georgia in Athens and had an incredible visit. Check out the story and more photos in this link. I'm the good looking guy with my cap on crooked.

On the race circuit, we are gearing up for the Publix Half Marathon to be held on March 20th where our goal is to gather the largest group of KPF runners ever...to date our largest contingent of KPF athletes has been 22 in chairs being pushed by 72 volunteers. Whether or not you have competed with us before this is your opportunity to participate. The application is on our "newly designed" website. We will match you up with a three person team of your relative speed so there is nothing to stop you from joining us. 

NOTES OF KPF INTEREST 
  • It's not too early to sign up for the 2016 Jake Vinson Family Grant. 
  • We will be blogging consistently this year  on the blog...once per month so stay tuned. 
  • See our new website and share on social media 

Our book, "Where There's a Wheel, There's a Way" continues to
get some superior reviews on Amazon. Please take a moment and post yours there as it really helps others make a purchasing decision. We would also love your creative photos of you and the book for our Facebook Wall of Fame

Until next time, Together We Wheel, 

Kyle
