Tonight was the official kick-off party for the Team in Training Fall races. Lots of icebreakers to help introduce us to the rest of the team! I had my fingers crossed to win the $100 credit toward my fundraising minimum but alas...not tonight LOL.
There was also a woman who came to speak to us who is the only leukemia survivor in North America to have survived 3 bone marrow transplants. Her zest for life was so amazing, given the difficult hand she's been dealt over the last 13 years. It was good to be reminded that there is no point in extending your life if you aren't going to live it! That's pretty good advice for everyone, if you ask me :)
First Group Training run is on Saturday morning! I am so looking forward to it! It will be good to start working with a coach and improving my running in all areas. I've come a long way since I first laced up my running shoes back in February...but I know I will benefit greatly from the guidance a coach can give :)
Last I checked, I was #14 on the Top 25 TNT fundraisers in Canada! I am only 18% of the way to my goal, so there is still a long way to go! I am confident I will get there, but every little bit helps :)
