Well….January 2013 is now in the books and what a month it was! In the last week, with your encouragement and inspiration, the 100 mile mark was broken, I had my first run in College Station (Texas A&M visit -see below- whoop whoop!) and ran my longest distance to date – 20 miles. Onward and upward to February and two scheduled races – Too Cold to Hold 10 Mile on 2/3 and the Austin Marathon on 2/17!
A special thank you to Jessica Setnick for the generous donation in honor of her mother-in-law, Catherine Schon, who passed away after years of sadness from Alzheimer’s. Catherine has been added to my tribute book (see picture below) and a purple ribbon with her name will be added to my running gear for the next race on 2/3.
I sometimes step back in amazement about the times we live in. It was so easy to set up this blog, establish a fundraising site and reach tens (hundreds, thousands, someday?) of people through social media. Going through this has given me the opportunity to meet and learn about other interesting people from around the country. For instance, who knew there would be another crazy person with a goal to run 1000 miles this year up in the northeast?? Please access his well written and interesting blog at http://mywayto1k.com/ and give him some encouragement. This is an incredible yet small world!!
Make it a memorable day!
