Kick-Off was AWESOME!!!

what a great morning we had yesterday :)

we had hundreds of enthusiastic new (and veteran) participants turn out for our Kick-Off breakfast, in spite of bad weather. energy was high, laughs were loud and sincere (not nervous), everyone seems really excited to start this new adventure.

me too... i'm getting excited.

the roads are still a bit slippery after yesterday's snow, even though most of it is gone now... so once the ice has melted a little more i'm headed out for a run.

oh, and i am selling raffle tickets for a new mercedes again... $100 to a great cause (Leukemia & Lymphoma Society), which will also be $100 toward reaching my fundraising goals... and you'll have a 1:3,000 chance of winning a brand new car.

let me know if you're interested and i'll send you the forms.

starting the season off right...

it's raining.
i'm packing to move.
i have the pre-Christmas (far away from family and friends) blues.

finding it hard to get out running.

but Kick-off is just around the corner! time to give myself a kick in the butt so that when we have our first group training run in 9 days, i won't be huffing and puffing my way through a three mile run.

but first, i'm going to try to pack a few more boxes, just in case the rain lets up a little later on....
(master procrastinator that i am!)
