Getting bogged down with the Holiday

It seems I have gotten bogged down, running errands and fundraising and not been training hard enough. We will have to remedy this as the week goes on.

I have two full days of wrapping gifts at Borders for donations to Leukemia & Lymphoma to reach our goal for the Disney Princess Half Marathon. I am about 68% of the way just waiting for some company matching donations to show up by Feb. Recommitement is Dec 29th so it's vital to get more funds in our accounts or we will be making up the difference between our goals and what we have raised.

We are selling chocolate bars and will have an auction in January as well.

My goal today is to walk atleast 2 miles maybe 3.....

Merry Christmas and remember even a $10 donation is a huge gift ....lives can be saved one dollar at a time.

Baby its cold outside

I finally joined a gym because it's way too cold outside to walk or run. My dogs don't even want to go for a walk...... 20 F burr!!!

I have been going to the gym and walking on the treadmill, boring for someone who likes the outdoors. I also rode a stationary bike as well. I think I will be trying out some Zumba classes and such to mix it up and strengthen up for the 13.1 mile walk.

I put in 2 miles at the gym and another 3 just shopping and doing my daily chores.

Our fundraising is moving along we are half way to our combined goal of $9000 between myself and my two girls. Go Team.....

How time flies

Well Thanksgiving is over and the fundraising is in high gear. We are 1/3 the way to our goals of $3000 each. We need to get more because our recomittment date has been moved up to Dec 29th from Jan 7th. At recomittment we pledge to earn the rest of the money or pay for it ourselves.....kinda scarey.

I went for a walk in Walmart today since it was only 24 F outside with a biting cold wind. I don't like the cold. I walk my dogs everyday in it but, that's not enough to train for the Disney Princess Half Marathon.

Our event for Team in Training is on Feb 27th.......I can't wait to go and participate in my first event just before my Big 50 birthday.

Walking in the Rain

Well the weather was a bit wet today......I got up and ponder wether or not I wanted to venture out. I had a date with a friend to go out to Rotary Park and walk laps as her toddler ran around the park and us chasing him. We got a good bit of exercise and very damp at the same time.

I realized my wardrobe is ill equipped to stand up to the wet weather......wouldn't I love to review outdoor workout gear.

I figure we walked about 2-3 miles today....I need a decent pedometer that measure miles .

I am planning a funderaiser to auction off local gift certificates in the Waynesboro area. Its alot of work to get it all in motion and then get it advertised for a good turn out.

Click on the Team in Training logo at the left of my blog to support my effort to fundraise for Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. I am 17% of the way to my goal of $3000 by Jan 7th.....
Go Team !!!

Getting out more

Well as you can see blogging hasn't taken over my life yet. I have been super busy this past week........working on fundraising . I will be putting together a night of entertainment -ie music with some hordorves and a live auction of donated gift certificates etc. to raise some money and a baked goods silent auction.

It's alot of work to fundraise hopefully I will get more private donations which have been relatively slow and I really appreciate those of you willing to donate....whatever you can afford is one dollar closer to a cure...

I got in a really good walk today with my neighbor , I am garnering the support of friends to drag out on a walk with me...with the weather getting colder it gets more challenging.

I need a new pedometer and some warmer clothes to walk in.

Out hitting the roads

I was out on Thursday morning with a friend for a good walk.....now I just need to make these longer walks a routine.
