Half Marathon Training & Fundraising

It's been a long time since I have taken a moment to blog. I'm sorry! I can only do so many things! I'm not super woman. Between work and kids and running and cleaning  and crafting and just the day to day stuff I am feeling overwhelmed but I anticipate the feeling will die down a lot after my FIRST HALF MARATHON! Woop! I feel like I am trying to take on the world right now and it will be nice once the half is ran and I can relax a bit. I will keep running but I wont be in marathon training mode which will be nice. Training is going real well with the exception of a missed run here or there due to sick babies or what have you. I feel like I am ready to do this thing! A few more long runs and I'll be good to go. . . I hope.

Did I mention that I have decided to not run the Rock 'N' Roll Las Vegas Marathon? No? Well I did. Partly because I don't want to run in such a crowded chaotic half marathon for my first time and partly (well actually mainly) because I booked a flight to Oregon to see my Mom without thinking about the date of my Marathon and accidentally book it for the same day as the marathon. Gosh I am such an airhead sometimes!  But oh well, life goes on.  So given that,  I decided to run the same race I did last year; The aMAYZing Race at the Valley of Fire (for the Hailey Mayz foundation- if you aren't familiar with this foundation I suggest you google it because they do amazing work). Last year I only did the 5k so I'm excited to came back new and improved this year.  The race is on November 20th, so it's about a week earlier then the original plan but that's okay because I think I'm prepared. I'm excited to see in two weeks if all my hard work has paid off.  I'm also kind of excited that the half is right before Thanksgiving so that way I can be a true fatty and indulge for the holidays guilt free! Yay!

Now on the fundraising.. meh. I'm disappointed in myself because I haven't made any more strides but I know at least I am doing some good and hope the $945 I have raised can really help someone at the Make-A-Wish Foundation.  If you are interested in sponsoring me let me know... 100% of the money raised goes to the Make-A-Wish Foundation.

So that's all I have for now.  Thanks for sticking with me for the past couple months of no blog posts.  Don't worry though, I will be back soon and I will blog your faces off with high quality blogness.

AND By the way, don't forget to check out the "Suite 4E Shop" page on here or go to my Suite 4E Etsy page... I added a bunch more stuff to my Shop.  I also made a facebook page for my shop so if you want you can head on over and "like it". Let me know what you think!
