  • Last week I told you about a charity run: 15’s 5K. It was a real Perkins family effort, with Glen’s wife, Alisha, doing the organizing, planning, and giving the congratulations to the runners at the finish line.

I also told you about Glen, Phil Hughes, and Brian Duensing pulling up to the starting line in the bed of a pickup truck. That truck was being driven by a very interesting character. It was driven by Glen’s father-in-law, Kurt Weber.
