Yup, that’s right…I’m crazy. Why you ask? Because I signed up for the Chicago Marathon on Sunday October 7th! That’s 26.2 miles and I’m NOT a runner…well I wasn’t anyways 😉
I decided to sign up for a few reasons:
#4. I’ve been wanting to get back into shape for a while now and figured this was the kick in the ass I needed.
#3. I want to quit smoking cuz it’s just gross and stupid. (Drinking red wine again will never quite be the same though)
#2. I’m running a 10 mile race May 26th which is pretty close to half a marathon. If I can do that why not go for broke?! (Even if you’re not a runner you probably know that 10 miles and 26.2 miles is a completely different animal all together but this is just how my logic works. Go big or go home!)
#1. I want to help raise money to find a cure for Alzheimers. It seems that it runs in my family and I’d really like to not forget all of you by the time I’m 70 (unless of course it’s b/c I drank too much that day 😛 )
Seriously though, my grandfather passed from Alzheimers a few years back and it kills me knowing that one day my father might not know who I am if he develops this awful disease as well.
The link below will take you to my fund raising page. It says my goal is around $260 but I’d really like to try and raise $1000 or more. If you can donate anything at all I’d be extremely grateful!!!
I start training on May 8th!!!! Wish me luck; I’ll post updates on my page about my progress every so often.
Loves and hugs!!!!
p.s.-Special thanks to Jay for giving me that final bit of motivation to sign up! You rock!
