I am pondering different ideas for fundraisers. I want to create some yearly ones that would be fun, exciting, and grow. I am thinking this winter of doing a chili cook off.  I know finding the chili won't be hard, but finding a place that will donate the space might be a challenge - but I AM UP FOR IT!  I can't say how much I appreciate all the support I have been given by my mentor Lisa.  I can't wait to work with you in the future with other ideas.  One idea that she came up with was Scavenge 4 a cure... I am thinking that this would be a fun one to do around Eau Claire/Chippewa Falls.  I will see what I can come up with for this summer.  I can't wait to figure out my next destination race.  :) Hope you are all having a fantastic week.

The Journey Continues!

As of Sunday, October 16, 2011 I have completed my FIRST Half Marathon with Team In Training.  I went out to San Francisco for the Nike Women's Marathon.  I completed the race in 4 hours 42 minutes and 47 seconds with a wonderful friend Connie!  After completing this I have decided to continue working on fundraisers along with challenging myself to get healthy all the way around (physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual).  I will be using this blog as a journal of my experiences, thoughts, and for you to see what I am doing now.  Please feel free to comment, cheer me on, and encourage me!  I will also be posting upcoming fundraisers that will be going towards LLS.  Then once I figure out what my next race I want to complete is going to be I will be posting that.  Thank you to all who have supported me so far!  I hope you enjoy this blog!
