Saving Lives One Mile At A Time:
Train Endure Achieve Matter
Wednesday, April 21, 2010
With 3 weeks remaining on my fundraising campaign, I am $700 away from my personal goal of $3900! The deadline is May 17th. If you have not donated yet PLEASE visit my fundraising site and make a donation today! Thank you so much!
My eight year old niece, Alexis, wanted to be on my blog after I showed her what I was doing with the Bunny Chase photos. I told her that it was a running blog so I needed to post photos of her running. Well that was no problem for her; she even recruited her younger sister, Gianna, to join the fun.
My weekend started bright and early Saturday morning with setting up for the 2nd Annual Bunny Chase 5K and Family Fun Festival. I arrived at Medal of Honor Park at 6:30am and began setting up the face painting booth.
Race participants started arriving not long after we began setting up. The Easter Bunny appeared and really had a great time entertaining the children and racers.
I was not able to complete my long workout with my TEAM this weekend because they ran on Friday, the day of my high school's prom. So I completed my long workout this morning while everyone was just getting up and getting ready for the Easter celebrations. The mileage this weekend was 8 miles and I was able to walk the entire distance in 2.5 hours, with minimal knee pain. I am not sure when I'll be able to run again. I will be starting week 3 of physical therapy tomorrow. It is definitely working because my knee pain is diminishing slowly.
