Every penny counts! Goofy Training Update

In That's Goofy! on July 31, 2012 at 11:58 am

This week’s update is a great one. 

Training

My update for last week was mid-week (went through Wednesday) so there is not a ton to report on training.  I took Thursday off since I did a double workout on Wednesday and then Friday it rained and one kiddo had Fifth’s Disease to my plans to run were out the window. 

Saturday – 11.12 mile run. 

Sunday – off

Morning sunrise.

Monday – 1 hour boot camp followed by a 20 minute/2-mile run.  I was up at 4:30 am to get it all in and back home by 7 am. Another hero donation the night before and the welcome of a beautiful morning sun was fantastic motivation.

Fundraising

Hero Fundraiser – Fundraising is off to a GREAT start!!! I have 3 heros to run for!  You can read more about that HERE>>> Hero Fundraiser.  Basically, for a $39 donation, I dedicate a mile to your hero.  I have some fun surpises for you and your hero so go read about it. I am just thrilled that I can run for a cause.  One friend posted a photo this weekend on facebook and it sums it all up.

Make a change – Since I was young, I have kept a spare change jar. My grandmother kept a spare change jar. She would add up the money and buy savings bonds for all her grandchildren. When we graduated college, it was her gift to us. Watching her save and count her pennies and have it turn into a wonderful gift really made an impression.   Over the years, my spare change jar was the revenue stream for toys, as I grew older, weekend trips and lately charitable organizations. The change bucket was looking pretty big so I add it all up and it came out to $250. Since my company matches up to $250 dollars, I thought this was a great way to pay this gift forward and double the effort. 

Totals to Date

$467 on-line donations

$250 pending corporate match

Total: $717 to date or 18% of goal!

If you would like to make a donation, you can go directly to My Fundraising Page or if you would like to honor a hero, check out My Hero Fundraiser.
