FINAL donation update!
We did it! I got to my goal, and not only do I now have guaranteed entry into next year's Marathon, but TFK has more money to fight the good fight.
Thanks to all of my donors; whether you gave $5 or $500, I appreciated every generosity. Thank you thank you. Most were friends and family, but quite a few were more distant acquaintances and even a few complete strangers were kind enough to support me. Some of you gave TFK fake email addresses in your donation forms, so I couldn't send you my own personal thanks. I'll do that now; thank you thank you thank you!
And thanks to those who couldn't give money, but helped in other ways; keeping me company on a run, going out for brunch or a movie when I needed a break, and listening patiently while I obsessed and freaked out. These were important things. Don't think I didn't notice.
If you would still like to donate, there is still time, and TFK would definitely appreciate any extra help they could get. I will leave the thermometer and donation buttons up until December 1st, so maybe if you feel like you are having a fat day, you can remember to help the fat day epidemic and throw a couple of bucks in the donation jar. Or go to the gym. Ideally both. Be healthy AND generous. :)
So, I will have my first training comeback post up this weekend, I will be back on the road in the new year, and I have many races I'm hoping to run leading up to my new Marathon date. Please do keep reading!
Its a thank you...I run road races...whatever. thank you!
