update - time flies!

Hello all!! I am so sorry for lacking in the daily blog department.  I cannot believe how fast time has gone by - its September 4!! 20 days till my birthday!  Just thought i would let you know i just tallied up my cash donations & my 3 trips to the bottle depot ($61) - mailing it off tomorrow - sending in donations for $536!!!! SWEET  Thank you to EVERYONE who has helped me out so far - and to those that are going to help out - hopefully sooner rather then later. Really - why wait to make a difference when you can make one now.

I have decided to join the running room training clinics.  I am going to the store in South Surrey this weekend to get more information - I want to start with the half marathon - then continue on with the full marathon - thats what i think will work best.  BUT best to leave it up to the pros.  I am finding it so difficult still to get up and go and run by myself - so Running Room clinics here i come! 

and a BIG THANK YOU to Rebecca ( the spotlight in her recent blog about my quest - very VERY much appreciated!  For those of you who haven't checked out her blog - you should - its great!
