Hi again 🙂
First of all, THANK YOU SO MUCH to all of you who expressed your support over my decision to run the 2009 Nike Women’s Half Marathon with Team in Training!
Your comments and emails actually brought tears to my eyes. Thank you especially to those that already showed their support by donating!! I seriously want to hug each one of you because it means the world to me! Raising $4,200 for cancer research seems like an insurmountable task, but I know that together we can do it! Remember, no donation amount is too small. Every penny counts in reaching the final goal of $4,200! But to be totally honest, $4,200 is the goal that the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society gave me. I FULLY INTEND TO EXCEED THAT AMOUNT by October. How amazing would that be?!
My official training begins May 16th so until then, I just plan to stick to the 3 mile distance and build up my endurance by continuing my triathlon training. I cannot wait to meet my coach and new teammates and start the journey!
This afternoon I really wanted to take my bike out for a spin but it started to downpour and got really windy and nasty. So instead, I relaxed with some yoga! I did 40 minutes of a Dave Farmar’s podcast and it felt delicious. Before I practiced, I fueled up with another one of the yummy bars that Kristen sent me!
The rest of the afternoon was just spent reading up on all the new material I have regarding the LLS (Leukemia & Lymphoma Society) and writing donation letters. I was psyched to see that my RoadID finally came in the mail though!
Love that hot pink!
Dinner was super random tonight. Am I the only one that craves weird things when its stormy outside?! I baked an organic acorn squash with butter and brown sugar and had a yogurt bowl on the side:
My mess contained 8 oz Voskos Greek yogurt, 1 crumbled weetabix, 1 spoonful almond butter and a little bit of raspberry preserves.
And for dessert, I totally pigged out on the “healthy” dark chocolate peanut butter cups that, again, are courtesy of my yummy care package from Kristen!
Now that I got my candy craving out of my system I can move forward! 😉
I’m headed into a bubble bath then off to do bible study and read myself to sleep. REALLY trying to get into Ahab’s Wife but just can’t seem to! Anyone?!
