I wanted to explain that my blogging (and commenting) has been a wee-bit sporadic lately.
Things are moving quickly over here! There is lots of running going on (obviously). As it may seem that is the only thing going on in these parts, I also have a big job ahead of me to raise $3200 for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society to run in The Nike Marathon in October.
So I’ve been a busy hosting yardsales, planning charity beer nights as well as a fashion show all for the cause!
So far so good!
I have officially reached my half-way point in training and in fundraising. So the next two months should be a breeze?
Or technically, I could have the biggest challenge ahead of me.
I’m not really scared anymore about running 14 miles or 16 miles because really, that’s just a few more than 12 right?
So that means that 26.2 is in the bag!
But the fundraising has been a lot of work. It’s really, truly HARD to ask people for money. But it’s been a pleasantly surprising experience too.
I personally know how hard it is to spare some extra mula. But I am seriously in such utter amazment at how generous and awesome people are being.
Of course, I know that it is to support me and this amazing adventure I have signed myself up for. But more than that it is for a great cause.
I am reminded every single day that I am so blessed to be alive, healthy and happy.
I appreciate all the love and support I have received through this process and know there is so much more of this journey left.
Thank you for every kind word, every motivating comment and your financial support as I could not do this without you.
So I leave you with that as I am off to work a little more on our upcoming fundraising event… Kegs For A Cause!
Who wouldn’t want to drink a beer to support cancer research, I mean really?
