A Distant Memory.

Sure, the week started out with the Monday Blues, but they are just a distant memory now. The rest of the week was joyous and this weekend is going to be fantastic!

Tonight, I'm heading to a friend's fundraiser for the Relay For Life event supporting Canadian Cancer research! I'm looking forward to the silent auction, food, and visiting with friends!

This morning, I signed up for two 10K races! I have never run a race and while starting with a 5K might make the most sense, it seems somewhat uninspiring to me! I already know I can run 5K no problem, so I'm looking forward to training for 10K!

I have signed up for the Freedom Run 5000 10K on June 26th to raise funds to held educate girls in Afghanistan. I couldn't pass this run up. It's a small gesture compared to the large sacrifices my boyfriend will be making throughout this year in Afghanistan doing his part. I'm really excited for this one.

The second run I signed up for is The Underwear Affair 10K on July 9th to raise money for below the waist cancers like prostate, ovarian, and colorectal. It looks like SO much fun! People come out in great outfits and I have no doubt it will be a wonderful time!

So many fabulous things to look forward to!

Hi--just stopping by from Iron & Sunshine :)
You'll love running these races. Runners are really supportive of each if you're struggling they'll give you a nice push :)
