Memorial Day Dash or bust!

As promised, one more post before our next race this weekend! We will be enjoying the long weekend (hopefully), and wrap it up with our 24th race first thing Monday morning! We are going to be running the Memorial Day Dash for the 2nd year in a row, and we're excited to see how we do.

Like all of our Team G Shock races, we'll be running this one in honor of my Dad and everyone else out there fighting the fight. For this particular race, we are going add a very special person to our list of motivators. My dear friend and coworker, Rosemary, is the sweetest person I have ever met. Literally. And her equally sweet father, Johnny, is going through his own cancer fight as we speak. He was diagnosed with Stage 4 kidney cancer that has now spread to his liver. But with everything that has been thrown at him, he just keeps fighting back with the most positive attitude ever (must be where Miss Rosemary gets it from!). So if you've got an extra prayer to spare - which lets be honest, you do - send it up for Johnny! We'll be doing our best on Monday with him in mind, and I'm sure it will pay off!

Mr. Johnny Radford, cancer fighter extraordinaire!

Please welcome...

...our new addition! :) No, not that kind of addition. We got a puppy! I finally convinced Nate and he finally caved. And I'd say 99% of the time, it was a great idea. ;) Sometimes when she's up at 4AM that's hard to see, but we'll get there!

And that's been keeping us pretty busy, but we've still been training at Crossfit CFT as always (mind you, we don't get to go to the same class together anymore because one of us needs to be home with the pup). We're excited to see how that training helps us in our next race this coming weekend! I'll update the blog one more time before then with some special information about this particular race, so keep reading for that!

World, meet Shelby.

Warrior Dash - Its Official!

As we said a few weeks ago, we are going to be running the Warrior Dash here in Tennessee in September! We have officially registered for the 12:30 wave and can not WAIT to run! A few of our friends are going to join us which should make for a fun day.

If you plan on joining us, and want to run in the same wave, get over to the site ASAP to register! And if you end up in another wave, that's fine! It will be a fun afternoon either way!

Our Next Race!

With the Warrior Dash looming this Fall, we figured it was about time to sign up for another race! In about 4 weeks we will run the Memorial Day Dash for the second time. We ran this race last year, and it went pretty well. We've started to add in some running to our training, in addition to the work we do at Crossfit CFT, so we can't wait to see what this race brings!

This race will be our 24th race, which is CRAZY! We originally set out to run 10 races, but that seemed too easy and we wanted to raise more money for the Prostate Cancer Association, so we upped it to 20 races. We've obviously surpassed that at this point, but we're not done with Team G Shock yet! We plan on continuing to run races, and maybe mix it up with a few other things here and there. So please keep coming back for more information and let us know if you want to help us find a cure for prostate cancer.
