July Update

Hi everyone!

Once again, the end of the month has snuck up on me and it is time to send out another update on how my training and fundraising has been going.  Only 82 days until I am running in San Francisco!

I am still meeting up with my Team in Training team for our Saturday group runs.  It is really great to be a part of a team for those.  I truly can't imagine going for a 15K run by myself!  Just last weekend, I ran the entire way around Glenmore Reservoir in just shy of 2 hours!   I hope the next time I do that that it will be much cooler than the +25 it was at 8am that day! 

My fundraising has been going extremely well.  I am nearly at my fundraising minimum of $4500 and then I will push onwards to raise as much as I possibly can.  I want to thank everyone who has supported me so far.  Your donations and participation in my fundraising events has been most appreciated!   If you haven't had a chance to check out my fundraisers or to sponsor me - please check out the links at the bottom of this email to see what I have going on right now!

On the race front, I ran my first 10K in the Stampede Road Race on July 11!  Did it in 1 hour and 10 mins, which was pretty good for me.  I'd been running it in about 1:15 in my training runs!   My next 10K is in Edmonton towards the end of August.

Ultimately, I am enjoying this amazing journey I am on!   I can't believe that just a few short months ago, I couldn't have run further than the end of my block and when I am done, I will be able to run almost the equivalent of running out my back door and reaching the eastern edge of Calgary!  

Thanks so much for all of your support!

Love Cori :)
