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.

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!
