Coming from someone who has never been athletic, I can tell I'm really starting to get into shape and it's such a good feeling. I feel like I could run the half marathon now but obviously don't want to because I don't want to get injured. It's also exciting to look at my legs and see some definition... one of the definite perks of running! Another big plus of getting out there and pounding the pavement (or treadmill) is... it's so therapeutic! I can't stress that enough. I am a mom of two kids who I love dearly, but lets be honest, sometimes by the end of the day I want to pull my hair our and lock myself in a room to just get a moment to myself. Running lets me get out my emotions, my thoughts, my anxieties, and actually have a moment of peace to myself. It gives me a chance to reflect and mediate on how I can be a better person. I always end my run feeling so refreshed and feeling like I can take on
Now as far as the fund raising goes, it's kind of slowed down a lot. My list of people to ask for donations has dwindled. I am at a total of $645 which is not too far away from my goal of $1000, BUT I know I can do better then that! And I have some time. If you or anyone you know is interested in sponsoring me in the Rock-N-Roll Las Vegas Marathon please let me know. All money raised is going to the Make-A-Wish Foundation. Please contact me a firstname.lastname@example.org for information and sponsorship forms.
