It's Been Decided

My next race will be on June 5, 2010:

Outrun the Sun - 5 miles :)

Now, let me be clear on a few things.

I don't love running for disease causes.  I don't know why.  I don't have a specific reason....the only thing I can think of is I'm a teacher and education and teachers are in serious serious need of money - all the time.  I know this is the same as diseases like cancer but if I had to commit to a cause, it would be education.  Districts and schools all over the country are doing races to benefit them.  They are just harder to find sometimes.  I am doing an "event" at my school this year and am very excited.  It'll be smaller event for our first time around, but I'm hoping it'll raise some money and be the start of something spectacular.  I'll tell more about it as we get closer - but we are hoping to involved ALL of the kids and their families.  The real point is to get people moving.  The benefit point is to raise some money!

I was going to do a trail run in Nashville, IN on the 5th.  However, I'd have to drive down the night before - I just couldn't imagine doing an hour+ long drive the morning of a race, and we really don't have extra money for any travel right now.  So, I'll do the local race - at 7pm on a Sat. night, which actually will be kind of cool and different.  Plus, it's in Fort Harrison State Park , which will also be cool.  I plan on spending lots of time there this summer!

So that's all for now.  Hubby is going out of town for a few days and that always makes life very interesting for me.  And my life has been insanely busy the past couple of weeks. I've taken off a week from running, and still, oddly enough, I seem to be on an emotional upswing - which is always a very good thing!


  1. We will have to meet up either before or after the race!!! DH and I are doing the 5K of that run. He is not ready for 5 miles so we will only do the 3.1 miles. Guess I need to get back into running. I haven't ran since the mini...I've worked out, just not ran. :)

  2. I ran for my local school district last fall and it was awesome because of how grateful they were since they needed support so bad.
