I am happy to announce that I am 53% of the way to my fundraising goal!!
Re-commitment is May 20th (where we say “Yes, I am definitely going and I am definitely going to raise the money) and I’m a little nervous, but I know I can do it. I have a little over 2 months until the race and to raise the money.
I did a silent auction this month and raised a little money. The items that didn’t sell will be relisted in a couple of weeks. I have some great stuff so I’m hoping that maybe they will sell and bring in a little more money. Every little bit helps right?
In training we have gotten up to 6 miles on our weekend “long runs.” This Saturday we are doing hills. It is hard to find hills in Florida, but we do have some… you just have to drive to find them. I missed the last hills day (I got lost), so I’m looking forward to this Saturday. I think. The hills are slightly terrifying to me. So we shall see.
I joined a gym last week so that I have somewhere inside to run during the week. It is all ready REALLY hot here in Florida, so running outside is getting harder and harder. And I am not one of those people that can get up and go run at 5 am before work. Most of my running buddies don’t leave nearby and I’m NOT going to go running in the dark alone. No way man.
I’m also looking forward to taking classes at the gym as well. I get off work at 4:00 and they offer classes at 4:30 pm during the week so it works out perfectly for me. I can just head straight to the gym after work and take a class. No risk of going home first and getting distracted by the dog or the couch. I’ll be trying out my first yoga class on Friday afternoon and I’m really looking forward to it.
