WOW,  I have learned so much in the last coule months about fundraising.  Setting up a big event is way more then I expected it to be but is a great learning experience.  This Chili Cook-off is going to be a huge success I can feel it already.  We have gotten so many great donations and are still looking for more people who think they have the BEST Chili.  If you think your Chili is the Best CLICK HERE to get your registration form.  Please have it in the mail soon so your spot is reserved.  I have many places to update on the Thank-You board, I will be updating that hopefully this weekend.  If you would like to donate to the Silent Auction or to the Bake Sale please email me so that I can put you down on my list. 
We have 2 celebs that will be judging the Chili from the local area - Sarah Stokes and Chris Herzog from WEAU-13.  Also got asked to be on the Sunrise show with WEAU-13 on Monday March 5th, 2012, I am super excited to tell the community about Team in Training along with the Chili Cook-off!

One side note - I just want to say I can't wait to be running on the beach next week!  I will be disconnected from the "world" for a few days!  Hope you are having a great week!

Roller Coaster Ride

What a day today has been!  Some good and some bad.  I am so Thankful for my friends who have stood beside me and are still standing beside me during this venture.  I started to read the book The Courage To Start: A Guide To Running for Your Life by John Bingham.  This is funny as I see things in me doing the same and a reality check to what we think.  I also started a visual of my weightloss venture. I put glass beads in a container (the number equal to the pounds I want to lose) and then put another container next to it.  This is a great reminder that I am the only one that can do anything about my life.  I have to remind myself that while I am paying it forward by fundraising for a great cause, I am also doing this to take charge of life.  I want to say Thank you to my team-mate Nicole for all the heard work you have been putting in to the Chili Cook-off, and to my boyfriend for being at my side.

If you are interested in donating to the bake sale/silent auction/or you think your chili is the BEST, please send me an email at or fill out the form below for the chili.

Thank you to everyone for making this a great become a great one!  I am excited for the day to come.
