New Kicks!

On Thursday of this week, I will turn 31 (eek!). To celebrate, my parents came into town this weekend. We had a great time touring Nashville, and they even got to see our in-progress soon-to-be new home. Since they had to leave before my big day, I got to open my presents a little early, and my big present this year was....new running shoes! My previous shoes were Newton's, and I love them. I love them so much, I've worn them out, so these arrived just in time.

I'm excited to give these a try, and especially to sport them for race #40! Stay tuned to see if they help me run faster...

2 Weeks To Go!

We are a little less than 2 weeks away from race day, and we are so excited by all of the support we have received so far.

We gained another Team G Shock runner this week when our friend, Rosemary Radford, decided to join us! We've run with Rosemary before...most recently in our 37th race, which was certainly a memorable one, and we are so excited to have her join us for this race! That brings us up to 5 runners (1 baby along for the ride) so far! We also ordered new shirts for everyone this week, and we can't wait to see how they turn out.

Our fundraising is still going great (thanks to you all)! We are up to 31 donations, which brings us to $1630 for race #40. And that also brings our overall fundraising to $7,495! We are so excited to be inching closer and closer to our total goal of $10,000 and are so thankful to everyone for helping us get this far!

If you want to help us reach our goal, check out all the ways you can help over at this post. Hope everyone has a great week!

We're so excited by all of the support, and can't wait to see where we end up by race day!
