Winter 2012 Team in Training Kick Off

In That's Goofy! on September 7, 2012 at 4:54 pm

Psstttt, I will tell you a little secret. I signed up for the Disney Goofy Challenge in July but September 6 was the official start date! I am so excited about this opportunity to embark on another season of fundraising for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.

Each season, Team in Training start off the season with a kick off meeting at a local park. What a day they picked, first day of school, Dr appointment, big work meeting, kick off and a boot camp class all to squeeze in.  Fortunately the kick off was about a football field away from the building I have my boot camp in.  My plan, run over to the meeting early, and then run the kiddos back to the gym and squeeze into boot camp a few minutes late. I managed to do all of that :).

I missed the best part of the kick off but I had the chance to spend a few moments with my mentor Gabi.  I really hit the jackpot on mentors so I am thrilled to have her.  She had a little present for her mentees.  She brought to the meeting purple and green balloons with a laminated card with our donation site on them. She launched them at the event in hopes that someone will find them and make donations.  Pretty cute idea! Hopefully mine

 will not end up caught in a tree or a ditch.  But crazier things have happened!

Wish me luck!
