I have heard from several of our challenge-takers and am starting to receive and post pictures [check out the photo album dedicated to the finish-liners] I am so proud of what is happening and what is being accomplished for the health of women — way to go girls!!!
I took the challenge and was scheduled to run a half-marathon on Saturday (here comes the but) …
But, I have been traveling too much, so I simply could not justify another trip away from home. My sister-n-law Hillary is taking my place and she and my sister Darci will be running the 10K in Salt Lake City, Saturday morning. I am not quite ready to run 13.1miles, but I will be running 10 on the Centennial Trail here in Spokane. In fact I told Geof that we are having our own little family race. The boys will prepare a finish line and there will water stops and pictures that I can post. After that there will be a garage sale. BIG garage sale, with lots of stuff that isn’t going to the new house. Since I’ll be in Seattle at Lasting Memories next Saturday [June 10th] I will miss the annual Liberty Lake garage sale — just couldn’t leave my husband all alone to sell my collection of stamps and other scrapbook-related items — we deciced to join our neighbor at his pre-sale this weekend.
I want to apologize to some who I believe were planning on running with me in Utah. I am so sorry to pull out this late in the game. I am still learning my limits. And, honestly I don’t think I had a clue as to the ginormous magnanimous [huge] of effort required to move a family of six — it’s out of control. Like no order in my house at all — and totally sucking the life out of me — crazy and overwhelming, but I refuse to move stuff we don’t use or need to the new house, so it’s show time on the clean-out and pare-down and pack-up and it seems like most of it has to be done by yours truly.
Anyway, back to the run update … If you have completed your run or other physical challenge, be sure to send me a pic and your feelings and I’ll post them in the photo album — and watch for some from me too!
