One Sick Goofy Gal - Week 15

Training Update:

So sick.  All week.  So it was a low mileage week for me this past week.  I am feeling better now, though so I should be back on track. Thank goodness for a coach who can order me to scale back.  I ran on Tuesday with my coworker and then spent the rest of the week in bed except for a 6k walk on Saturday when I started to lift out of the flu fog.
My coach assures me that taking a weekend off of my long run will not hurt my training so I am trusting the process and trying to not get too OCD about it.  I will not be attempting to make up extra mileage this week as I am trying to ease into running again so I can be ready for my long back to back runs this weekend!

Fundraising Update:
I am only $890 away from my fundraising goal!!!! $3360!   79% of the way!  Feels good to be so close to finishing off my fundraising minimum! 

Recommitment is coming really soon! 

We still have several fundraisers going on so please check them out and see if there is anything you might like to join us in to support us on our quest!

Fundraising in Action:

These are open across Canada so anyone can participate!
  • Magazine Fundraiser - Ongoing.
    Total raised for the team to date: $413
    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.  
  • WestJet Donation Incentive
    We have two round-trip vouchers for anywhere WestJet flies up for grabs.  IF you could like to get in on this, simply make us a $25 donation for each ticket you would like on the draw! We do need to process these manually so contact me directly to purchase your tickets (cash, cheque or credit card accepted)!  The draw will be held at our Nov 17 fundraiser event (you do not need to be present to win, but we'd love to have you there too - more info will be announced soon)

My Personal Fundraisers:
  • 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.
  • 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 in October: $32
  • Virtual Half Goofy Challenge
    While I'm running my butt off in Florida, you too could be completing half of the distance in this fun fundraiser.  10k on the Saturday, half marathon on the Sunday...and you get a REAL MEDAL for your efforts!!!  Only $10 to join!  16 People registered so far!!!
