Fire up for the Local 3!

So my leg seems to be on the mend. After a massage on Tuesday morning, taking Tuesday night off and then swimming and elliptical on Wednesday, I seem to have allowed my quad ample time to heal. Last night I ran Crossroads with Betsy. She pushed my pace, which felt good, and we ran all the way into town over the finish line of the marathon. Man would it be nice to feel that good crossing the finish line on marathon day!

Tonight Glen is having a fundraiser at Game On! for all of us to hang out before Shifter's race tomorrow at the Local Bar in Newton. The race tomorrow is a 3-miler, so Fred, Aimee, Betsy and I are going to go out and do a solid 9-mile run right before the race itself.

And the countdown continues to the Boston Marathon - 16 days, $5,301.00 raised, and $2,619.00 left to go towards my fundraising goal.

  1. So many people belong to organizations that need to raise money. Fundraising is becoming a way of life for many. If you need to raise money I would recommend you explore the different options at Easy Fundraising Ideas. They have lots of options for groups of any size. Many do not require any upfront money too.
