Training Update for August

In That's Goofy! on September 5, 2012 at 3:44 pm

I have soooo many updates! This is what happens when I procrastinate on blogging.


I am up to $1,939!!! That is 50% of my goal!

Pending: $1,250 in matching donations.

I had some beautiful and incredible donations in the month of August, it was a fantastic month!  Help me make September just as amazing by checking out my fundraisers below.


I have a few fundraisers in progress or coming up!

Hero Fundraiser

I now have 11 heros!  This weekend I plan on making bracelets that I can wear for each hero on my training runs.  If you would like to have me run a mile for one of your heroes, check out My Hero Fundraiser to learn more. My goal is to run for 39 people 🙂

General Donations

General tax deductible donations can also be made to my Team in Training Official Fundraising Page


In August I ran  for over 14 hours covering 70+ miles and burning over 8,000 calories.  I missed logging a few speed work runs and drills. I participated in 6 hours of boot camp classes. My mileage was a little lower than I wanted but I tend to schedule 1-2 week breaks every 6-8 weeks to let my body recover some. Since I have some of my biggest runs in September, I opted to ease back some at the end of August.  September is shaping off to an excellent start! Below are a few photos from my runs in August.


I am working hard and taking every mile of my training very seriously.  In addition, I am using my mission this year to use my legs for a good cause.  Three of the events listed below are for charitable organizations to make the life and health of other individuals better.  While I am not fundraising for those events, the proceeds of my registration fee benefit their causes.
