Yesterday, in the 20s, today, 60s!

Global warming is laughing at us and I’m smiling back. Andy and I braved it through freezing temps and were victim to endless chills and frozen fingers. However, today, we’ll run in shorts! What is going on? I’m not sure, but I’m keeping my mouth shut until April.

What’s new?

Fundraising: Well, we’re getting our plans together for fundraising and donations. Expect harassment soon! (kidding) Our shared google docs are a starting point, and we’re listing out local businesses and organizations that might be interested in donating or being a corporate sponsor for our Rock N Run event on March 27, 2009.  We start knocking on donor doors this week 🙂 If you know someone (or are someone) interested in helping us out, let us know! We appreciate every ounce of help.

Yes, we set an official date. We’re waiting for the line-up to firm-up, but we’re excited nonetheless.

Training: We are also beginning more challenging runs. Saturday is our first Dana Farber Marathon Challenge run, 11 miles–yay and yowzer. Our longest run will be Saturday. We’ll be out on the Cape on Sunday and hopefully we’ll be able to get the rest of our miles in for the week. I underestimated the difficulty of sticking to the workout schedule. I attempted (once) to run in the morning, with success I might add. Despite my enthusiasm the night before, dragging myself out of bed in the am is proving to be a difficult challenge. I do not like seeing 6 am on my clock.

And in the spirit of Christmas enjoy!
