A Goofy Way to Heal - Week 5

Training Update:

After my super painful long run last week, I dialed it back to give myself a chance to heal. It turned out it was a much needed break because my knee only groaned a couple of times during my 5k long run on Saturday.  



This week, I am going to really try to get all of my runs in.  even if it means getting on the dreadmill due to storms in the forecast...

Fundraising Update:

I was so busy getting my house ready to sell this past week that is didn't have a chance to do much active fundraising.  However - I am now over $1200 ($1600 if you count what's being split amongst the group).  Booyah!   Thank you so much to everyone who has donated so far!  I truly appreciate your support and am looking forward to a couple of big fundraisers I have happening in the near future (details soon, I promise!)


Fundraising in Action:
  • Magazine Fundraiser - Ongoing.
    http://www.magfundraising.ca/runformiracles
    Total raised for the team to date: $250
    This fundraiser will keep going until the end of January, so you will have plenty of time to treat your loved ones to gift subscriptions over the holidays
Upcoming Events:
  • TBA - make sure you head over to http://www.rungoofy.com and "Like" us to stay informed about any fundraiser events we are putting on!
My Personal Fundraisers:
  • Bottle Drive - ongoing
    Let me know if you have any bottles you would like to donate.  If you're in the Calgary area, I will happily pick them up from you :)  If you are out of town, you can always pledge your own bottle money to my fundraising
    Raised so far: $5
  • Bookmarks of Hope - ongoing
    I am selling handmade beaded bookmarks (made by me).  These elastic bookmarks will ensure you never lose your page again and work on both traditional paper books and with eReader cases.   $5 each.  There are pictures of the available styles on the Facebook page. I do sell them at my work and, starting next week, these will be available at Naughty Nelly on Northmount Drive and 40th Ave NW.  I will post other locations as I secure them.  I will also be creating several new designs shortly as I have just picked up more supplies.
    Raised so far in August: $10
  • Looking for Corporate Donors 
    If you own a company and would like to make a donation of $1500 or more, Team in Training will print your logo on the back of our race shirts for this season!  I will also happily post your logo on my Team in Training page for the whole world to see.  Don't have a logo but still want to take part?  I am a graphic designer and am happy to see if I can come up with something for you as an added perk to the program! Email me for details if you're interested!
  • Workout Challenge
    For every workout I complete, I pledged to put $2 in a jar.  If I skip a run on my training plan and don't make it up the same week - it's gonna cost me $5.
    Raised so far: $7

Now for a Donor Incentive!
This week, everyone who makes a donation will get one of my lovely handmade beaded bookmarks (donation must be at least $5)

(The winner of last week's prize was SHEENA!!! Thank you for the generous donation!  I'll pop the pack in the mail asap)

I will mail the prize anywhere so don't let geographical restrictions hold you back.  If you donate just $5, you might still win.  Every dollar counts and every dollar supports TNT and the important work of the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society of Canada
