Happy Thursday Friends! This week has flown right on by!
Here is a little peak at what I have been up to the last few days…
Monday Night’s Keg For a Kause Event to help raise money for The Leukemia & Lypmhoma Society!
We raised roughly $800 for our fundraiser but the exact total is still unknown so it could totally be more!
We drank for the Kause and had a TON of fun!
I think the coolest part is that I am so close to reaching my fundraising goals. I have a little less than $900 to raise which I feel is totally doable.
Then last night I met up with Bestie Maria yet again and this time we were able to get to runnin’!
We busted out a nice 4 miler in around 45 minutes. It was dark, stormy and rainy right before we went to run. I was actually looking forward to the refreshing rain on my face and then the sky miraculously opened up and the sun came out. It was lovely but very muggy.
We are Marathon Bound! Yes, that’s right we have both re-commited to the big MARATHON and are ready ready ready to run!
Speaking of running…
My awesome, sweet, totally rad little brother, has completely inspired me YET AGAIN.
So back a long long time ago, in this post to be exact, my brother decided that with all my running he wanted to do it too.
It wasn’t until Monday though that I have really seen him so excited about it. On monday night his roommate won a complimentary team entry in Boise’s Dirty Dash 10k race at our Kegs For a Kause raffle. So naturally he recruited my bro to be on his team, or more so my brother said “Dude, I’m totally there!”.
Anyways, I have seen him all over Facebook stating his excitement to run in his first race ever! He is going to tackle this beast of a mudrun as his first ever race. I LOVE IT!
He even texted me yesterday “I challenge you to get me ready for the dash. I’m ready”
I love me a challenge.
The Boy has a little over a month to prepare and I think it’s going to have to go down Rocky Style!
Yup, I am cooking up a plan that is going to kick it up a notch into high gear.
Oh little brother, I hope you are ready for the Dirty Dash Wrath I am bringing. Oh yes, it may be hard, it may be painful, but you are going to rock your first race like a champ!
So wish The Boy luck as he gets ready to take on this challenge. And how darn cool that we are both doing the same race?!
Any tips and pointers for a first time racer? I know I can remember my first race like it was yesterday, but I want to hear it from you!
