Week # 2

Week #2 just flew by!! With the holiday on Thursday, preparation for holiday Tuesday and Wednesday, being sick on Friday and traveling Saturday and Sunday, I'm not surprised that my training wasn't as consistent as I hoped it would be. My mileage was a little low, at 15 miles for the week, and that only consisted of three runs - all on the treadmill. Must do better next week!!


Fundraising is going well...I think. So far the website has received $370 in donations. That puts me around 18% of the way to meeting my goal. Hopefully the letters made it out and we'll get closer to the $2,500 fundraising commitment. It doesn't seem like a lot of money, but it makes it more difficult when you have to badger family, friends and co-workers for the donations!! You all are the best!! Also, I've been trying to come up with other fundraising ideas for the holidays, but I'm worried there won't be enough time, I may have to shoot for after the new year. Maybe a cookie party or a recipe exchange? Or I could just throw myself a huge birthday party and ask for donations instead of gifts...did I really just say that?! Of course, gifts are always accepted!! Anyway, if you haven't already done so, PLEASE DONATE!! It's for a GREAT cause!! And you'll be very happy you did come April when you're doing your taxes!!

Hope everyone is doing well. Please leave me a comment and let me know what you're up to - I'd love to hear from you all. And GO TIGERS!!! Mizzou-rah!!

Weekly recap:
Sunday: 5.9 miles
Monday: 3.3
Thursday: 5.66

Total: 14.9 miles

  1. Sara,
    Way to go!! I did tnt about two years ago, and did the half in St Louis. It was a wonderful experience. Don't worry, the letters will help and you'll be surprised, pleasantly, at how many people find a few extra dollars to throw your way.

    Pitch them this way...if they won't do it for the cause, tell em to be selfish and do it for themselves, take the tax deduction!!

    Good luck!

  2. Fundraising is tough. did usually has a commitment of something like $2500 when he does his JDRF biking stuff...most years he ends up paying out-of-pocket. I think the trick is to host an event of some sort. If I lived near you and you did the party thing...I would totally be there! That would be a fun event.
