Goal: MET! Woohoo!

Goal met!

Words cannot describe how grateful and thankful I am to EVERYONE who pitched in towards my goal for the American Cancer Society’s DetermiNation Team!!  Thank you so very much from the bottom of my heart and I truly mean that. You are making a difference in the lives of others and cancer treatment/research.  You are awesome so thank you again!

I so cannot wait to run this:


And do this:


It’s NEXT WEEKEND!!!! Aaaaaaah!  I am doubly excited because I get to see my good friend Heather and her parents and Bobby!  Yay!  My husband is off as well so we all get to hang out!  Woohoo!  I also get to see my Sister in Law Kayla cause she’s running the race as well! 

I ran 6 miles with my Running Group this morning and I had a blast as usual, even in the icy cold weather!  It’s odd because we are now in the Spring 5K/10K training season and everyone was running “low” mileage and it felt strange….I wouldn’t have called 6 miles “low mileage” just a year ago. It’s amazing how our perspective changes, huh?

Anyway, after we ran, we had a little seminar on what to do in NOLA for RnR weekend, where to meet up, etc., then a few friends of mine and I went to a cute little local cafe for breakfast!  It was just what we needed….it hit the spot! 

After we ate, I came home and got ready for my Sister In Law’s (Jason’s Sister) bridal shower…I’ll talk more about that later but I will say…If I EVER hear the words CHOCOLATE FOUNTAIN again, I will become violent and throw things SCREAM!  I dealt with that dang chocolate fountain for almost 2 hours and I still couldn’t get it to work.  I wanted to throw the entire thing in the trash by the end of it all!  Hah! UGH!

Hope everyone is having a nice weekend so far!  Stay warm!!! :0)


  1. congrats on meeting your goal! good luck on your r-n-r race!

  2. Im getting excited for the race too!!! Any interest in a blogger meet up? Elizabeth from RUnning for Bling will be there too. email me at sgrigely at if you're interested!

    congrats on reaching your goal!

  3. It never ceases to amaze me that I spend so much time worrying about how cold it is before I go out for a run, I'm in Michigan, but once I'm out there and chatting with other runners the cold weather doesn't enter into my mind.
    I love that you too think of 6 miles as "low". I love that! What a great feeling.
    Congratulation, on making your goal. My running group is running to get better seating and toys for our pediatric oncology clinic. I hope we make ours.
    Have a great day.

  4. woo hoo! So glad you met your goal, WTG!
    your running group sounds so fun, wish i had one!
    Whats this about a chocolate fountain?!? I need details lol!
    see you in less than a week!

  5. I've heard from other people that chocolate fountains can be nightmares - I'm sorry yours was one of that bunch. Congrats on meeting your goal - I am excited to read your race report. Good luck!!

  6. Congrats on meeting your goal! The Mardi Gras run is going to be such a blast - maybe I'll see you there!

  7. Good luck in RnR Mardi Gras Marathon. I am so jealous. That one is on my short list of races to do. I can't wait to see the trip report. Good luck!
