Lately, I look and feel like a popped can of biscuits. Just spilling out through my clothes. So, I decided something had to be done. I want to get back to basics. Of course you know I struggle with food regardless of what plan I’m on, but I’ve had great success with running and training for endurance events. After all, my site is about running and inspiring others to do so. 5K’s are kind of like “been there done that”… it’s really not exciting enough to motivate me anymore. So….guess what?? I signed up for the GO St. Louis Half Marathon in April 2012. 13.1 Miles!
And, because I know myself well enough to know that I would train for a month and get lazy, I planned ahead and signed up for Team in Training again. Team in Training is part of the Leukemia and Lymphoma society and they raise money to assist blood cancer patients, and raise funds to find cures for all forms of cancer. When I sign my name on the dotted line, I get to train with the team for the next 5 months and raise at least $1,000 for the cause. The fundraising contract I signed and the quest to cure cancer is certainly enough to light my fire! I’m excited. I had such a great experience last time. I’m not sure what goals I want to set, because I’ve gained weight, and I need to see what my body will physically allow me to do first. But, I need you to help me get a head start. Please help me and help TNT by donating to the cause! Here We go Again!!
