getting ready for san diego

so today i ran 13.3 miles of a scheduled 14 miler. acutally, i was supposed to go 16 on the original plan, but i am moving back to the lower mileage plan for my taper. probably not the best idea, but i am trying to give my foot a break.
it's not giving back.
there are two weeks left for things to feel better. but i guess you could say i knew this going in.
i keep wondering: 'how would it be to run with out pain?'

a giant thank you

i would like to say a really really big thank you to the girls who participated in running with scissors. it was a great day to hang out with each other. how fascinating to see the various styles, ideas, techniques and stuff. everyone supported a great charity, TEAM in training and the leukemia & lymphoma society. it will help make a difference in many families just like ours. hopefully this blog will become a spot for random entries about running and scrapbooking. yeah, we'll see.

Since this February, I've been training to run the Rock n Roll marathon in SanDiego CA on May 31. I have also been raising money for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. My goal is to raise $3900.
The running has been the easy part. Let's just say, I feel much more comfortable pushing myself to keep going for miles and miles than I do asking folks to let go of their hard-earned money! But it is definitely worth it. TEAM In Training has had over 390,000 participants since it began in 1988. Throught TnT and other fundraisers, LLS has given over $600 million dollars for research and patient support since it began in 1949. Check out more about it and
