Let's take a look at last week:
Monday: 2.71 miles
Wednesday: Sequence 1 of the Tracy Anderson Method
Friday: 3.03 miles, 5 minute yoga, & .5 mile walk
Saturday: Rest (Sick all day)
Sunday: 3 mile walk
I'm hoping that this week I'll be feeling much better. So far today seems good. I got out for my run and finished with some yoga.
This week will be a little more challenging. I signed up for a race that I'm not fully trained for, but then again I've never been fully trained for anything I feel like. So on Sunday morning I will be driving up to Rockport, MA for the Yukan Run TripleThreat Half Marathon Challenge! The races start at 9 am. Yes I said races. This is how the morning will look:
9 am: 1 mile
9:20 am: 5k
10:15 am: Half Marathon
|Extra for running all 3 races!|
Not only am I excited for seeing new places that are pretty close to home, but I'm also excited that I've reached 30% of my fundraising goal so far! I've set a new goal of reach 50% by September 6th. I know there's been a lot of stories going around right now about children who are sick. As someone who has seen these people first hand at Children's Hospital, my heart breaks even more for them.
|CJ's first opening day!|
I know that most people who are in my life today know CJ as a happy kid who is always running around. And that is how we see him now too. My family also remembers him being in the hospital. It is awful to think this is how we spent months, but CJ is stronger because of it. (No really, wait until he hits you or throws something at you.) We have pictures that we don't really show people hidden way on the computer. I hate that anyone has to go through this. I know that it is hard to think about good things that happen to us sometimes, but we should all try. It can be something small even. (Like that woman who held the door for you.)
I'm running for every single child and every single family who has to go through hard times with their children. I may not be a mother, but I do feel for you. If you can donate any amount to the hospital please do so here: Nicole's Fundraising Page.
