Marathon & Fundraising Progress

This is just a quick update on my progress... 

I'm pleased to say that I can easily run 6 miles now and my body doesn't feel like a puddle of slop afterward.  Its amazing to see what practice and determination can actually do for your body.  I never thought I would be able to run so long and not even get winded or tired afterward.  I love it.  I love being (or getting) into shape.  I love to see what my body can do when I push it and I love to be surprised by my ability.  It's a great feeling.  My runs are getting longer and longer so it's a little harder to make time for them but my husband is supportive which helps.  I just have to remind myself that taking care of myself physically and mentally is a good thing not only for me but for my kids, too.   If I don't remind myself of that its easy to feel guilty that I take a hour of time away from my kids every other day when I run.  Does anyone else who has kids struggle with feeling like that?

But anywho...

Fund raising progress is ok, but I know I can do better.  The shy side of me is prevailing in my fund raising efforts. I feel so silly asking for donations but I know I need to get over that because it's for a good cause.  I'm at a total of $945, which is only $55 away from my goal of $1000!  In reality I hope I can raise more then that.  It will be great to know my efforts actually helps a deserving child in the end. If you would like to sponsor me to run the Rock N Roll Las Vegas Marathon let me know!  All money is going to the Make-A-Wish Foundation.

Hope you all have a great Thursday!
