Last night I told Justin when my alarm goes off he has to push me out of bed. He came back with- due to his present condition and advice of the attending physician he is not allowed to push/pull or lift anything over 50 pounds. (He has an inguinal hernia and has a surgery consult Tuesday!)
So instead when my alarm went off at 7 I had him kick me. It sort of worked. 10 min later I got out of bed And got dressed:
I’m officially starting my half marathon training today. I’m trying out a run/walk interval set- today was 4min run/1min walk. It was nice and cool out, with the foreboding black sky creeping toward me, so it was pleasant. I did we’ll for the first day, I think. The whole set repeats for 45 min. I did it for 35 before heading home. Tomorrow is cross training for an hour. Maybe I’ll use that gym membership I bought a month ago and elliptical/bike??!!!!!?????
I’m going to start up p90x again as well. Woooooooooo doggie!
Donate to st Jude’s and help me meet my fundraising goals! I’m running 19.3 miles in 2 days- donate $19.30!!!!!
I believe in my last post I wrote about how I’d missed the cut off for the Space Coast Half Marathon, AND the Disney Princess Half Marathon.
Fast forward to last night, I’m cruising around Facebook while my husband is out with some buddies, looking at the Disney Princess facebook group. I see a post regarding running for charities, and there’s a list of all these organizations with spots left!
I do some quick searching and find that St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital offers the opportunity in exchange for fundraising in their honor!!!
SIGN ME UP
And I did!!! I signed up to run for them! I am a St. Jude Hero! I am still in awe over it all and on cloud nine. I’m so happy I have the opportunity to fulfill one of MY dreams while being able to give back to children so they can live THEIR dreams! I’ve always said ‘run for those who can’t,’ this is my first opportunity to do so!
My journey will be long and difficult, but is truly nowhere near the struggles these kids face on a daily basis.
SO I need your help! Any little bit helps, and I will honor each and every donor, regardless of amount, when I run Disney!

The donations from AMAZING people like YOU ensure families never have to pay for treatment. How AWESOME is that? When the world seems like it’s coming to an end because a baby has leukemia or another disease, finances don’t have to be an added stress. It’s so cool 😀
I’m toying with the idea of buying a bunch of Disney stuffed animals when I’m down there and donating them in honor of all the Donors that hit a certain $ mark. I’m not sure yet. I have six months to figure it out.
Oh and learn how to run a half marathon! I’ve been doing well lately, I just need to be more consistent- that’s how I’ll be able to see real progress! Time to get up early for sure now!

You will be glad you did!
