All In

We got our ChampionChips in the mail this week. They are just a little physical reminder of the challenge that we have posed to ourselves this year. And it looks like we'll be able to use them at the Canal Park Home Run Trot on March 29. It's weird sometimes how little things can be so exciting.

A quick update on pledges... Currently we have flat donations of $96 and per-mile pledges totaling $0.255. The per-mile may increase, though, based on the results of Dave's Challenge. That puts us so far at a projected total of about $350 contribution for the Dream Team. Thanks to everyone who has pledged money so far.

Running went fairly well for me last night, but Kristin was having trouble breathing after she got going. She put in one mile. I ran 2.75 mi, with a short walk break at the two mile mark.

Great job on the raising the money!!!

For Kristin on the breathing. I had a real hard time with breathing.For a while it seemed like I could not control it. Before you run, do some deep breathing,inhale for a count of 4 and exhale for a count of 4.Do that for a couple of minutes.

Then if you use the ellipitlcal {sp} for cardio training control your breathing while using the machine.Don't talk,just breath. Focus on breathing. I have gotten much better. Once you get control,don't let it control you.
It took me a long while, I have gotten better,and you can too.:)
