I'm totally stoked about two things this Thursday!
First, as you can probably guess from prior postings, the stoke is maxed out for the Sunset to Sunrise Relay starting tomorrow and "running" through Saturday. This race starts on the west coast of South Florida and ends on the east coast of South Florida. It's like 180 miles and there are all kinds of relay teams participating. I've been recruited to be a driver for an all girls team; a.k.a. Team Hot Legs. There are nine runners, two drivers, two vehicles and one bicycle rider/pacer. I'm learning it's quite the production and I'm sure I'm in for a real adventure! We'll see if I have enough energy for my 10-mile long run on Sunday. Regardless, expect a recap sometime next week!
Secondly, I can't even describe how stoked I am about all these donations being made to American Heart Association for Jenny and my Seattle RnR Marathon fund-raising event honoring heart disease victims such as my father. Jenny and I tweaked the website this week with her story in addition to mine so check it out here. Honestly, I've only mentioned it on this blog and to my mother and Jenny and we're already at $340 or 43 percent of our goal! This support is mind boggling and humbling all at once to me. Thank you so much! In the coming weeks, I'll try and write a few stories about my father and the awesome childhood he provided for me.
And one final stoke... as I'm writing this Harrison just called and told me the results from that 5k I ran last week during our little 'double pump' race day. It was the second race of the day for me and I totally blew it off as a fun run by "pre-gaming" with some Gatorade/Red Bull/Vodka mixture beforehand. Turns out I got second place in my age group! Go figure! Ha!
What are you stoked about?!?
