Today's Workout: 11.5 miles
Today's workout was fantastic. I had been having an off feeling day. I relaxed in the morning since I didn't run with TnT because it was so cold and icy this morning that they were going to cut the route down to 6 miles so I decided to wait to until it "warmed" up outside. I just wasn't feeling like myself. I know everyone has these days but I just couldn't seem to shake it off. I went to a coffee shop and hung out with Bee and Macey which was great. But I was still just a little.... unhappy?
I got home and immediately changed and headed out for a run. It was beautifully sunny and I just went. No plan I just wanted to run. I listened to music for the first time on a training run in a long time. It felt so great. I ran past dark and ended up with 11.5 miles - incredibly satisfying and completely refreshed. You have to love it when running can do that for you!
Last night was my cocktail party fundraiser for Leukemia and Lymphoma and it was a blast! I'm so excited to already be thinking about my next fundraiser. I have been surprised and extremely thankful for how well my fundraising has gone so far. You have all made this such a fun experience. I was nervous in the beginning that I would have a very hard time raising money - but thanks to all of you it has become easier.
In February I am going to host a virtual race to help finish getting to my $3,000 goal! I'm 80% of the way there now and am hoping that this race will cap off the rest that I need!
Here are the details:
Who: You, me, everybody!
What : 5k, 10k, half marathon run/walk race - your choice!
Where: Wherever you are
When: Anytime on February 16th or 17th.
Cost: $20 - Use my fundraising page for your payment (in the comments write that your donation is for the Virtual Race!)
In return for your race entry fee you get a bib to wear during the race, a medal once you send in your accomplishment to me, and knowing that you helped fund cancer research!
You can run or walk, grab some friends and all do it together! Group discount if you can get 4 friends to do it with you (a total of 5 people) it is only $15 a piece! You can make one total group donation on my fundraising page together and I will send all of the medals to the person who makes the donation.
