Dallas for the Rock N Roll half marathon on March 27th.
I was very excited when I discovered that this race benefited Susan G. Komen for the Cure as part of their Marathon for the Cure race series. I got a discounted registration fee of $75, and committed to raise atleast $1,000 for Komen for the Cure. With 12 days to go I have raised $1,555!
My secret weapon for fundraising has been cookies! I sent an email out to my co-workers, and posted on Facebook, that if people would donate atleast $25 I would bake them a dozen cookies. Chocolate chip or sugar cookies, their pick. The response was fabulous! I haven't baked as many cookies as I thought, some people have donated and passed on the cookies, but I have baked quite a few in the last month or so.
All that's left to do now is to go out there and run. I do have a 16 mile training run on Saturday for my marathon training, I am hoping that run doesn't kill me so I can go run in Dallas. I still have not recovered fully from the last 16 mile run we did, so I am hoping for better conditions and better results this week.
