I have almost 4 months to train to run in this 13.1 mile race. I have pledged to raise $4,100, and I know I can do it. I know that I have tons of friends who would be able to donate something, because even $10 gets me that much closer to my goal. I hope I have no problem raising donations, but you never know in this economy. I’m hoping people will realize what a great cause this is, and open their hearts and wallets.
A small portion of the $4,100 goes towards my accommodations – airfare to San Diego and a hotel room. The cool thing is, Team in Training handles all of the travel arrangements for me.
One of the best parts about all of this is that it’s such a personal challenge for myself. Running long distances is definitely not my strong suit, so this is going to push me in ways I cannot even imagine. I know my fitness level is going to increase tremendously, and I can’t wait to see how much better I’m going to feel. Not to mention the weight this training schedule is going to help me lose!
I know that I’m about to do something that is going to be a life-changing experience for so many reasons. I also see this is an opportunity to honor my dad and Julie’s dad as well as the others that have blood cancer.
