Fundraising Update

We got several donation pledges in the last couple of days. So far our total is $51, plus 21.5 cents for each mile we run. Assuming we reach our 1,000 mile goal, this puts our projected donation total at $266. This is a good start. I am very pleased so far. We didn't set a real fundraising goal when we started, but I know I would love to get $1 per miles total pledges. We are almost a quarter of the way there. Thanks to everyone who has pledged so far.

Kristin and I both hit the rec center yesterday. She went in the morning after she got off work, I went in the afternoon. We both had the same feelings during our runs. At about the one mile mark we felt really good and thought we could do two miles. We both almost got there but had to take a walk break. After a bit of a walk, we both got back to a faster pace and hit the two mile mark.

I felt really good after my run yesterday. It was the first time I haven't had a really stiff left leg after finishing. But I did develop a decent blister on my foot. I've never had that happen before. My shoes are well broken in, but definitely not over-used. I would say they have between 50 and 75 run miles on them. I guess we'll see what happens on my next outing...which should be Monday or Tuesday.

So what are you doing to raise money?

How would I donate?

Great job on the miles.

Go get your gait checked at a running apo and make sure you have the right shoes for you. It is well worth it.
