And now...onto fundraising. In my last post I explained I am looking for a way to earn money and raise awareness for Type 1 Diabetes. I think the majority of folks thought some sort of virtual 5K would work best for raising money so, that is what I will begin working on. Someone suggested a $10 entry fee, I think that is totally doable. I will see what running companies are willing to donate gear and I will raffle that off using a random number generator. I think I should give a pretty wide time frame. Does a week sound good? Do you think there needs to be some sort of award for fastest or should I just stick to the random generator? I think I can have people donate directly to my JDRF page and that will take care of entry fees. Donate $10 and you are entered in the race. I was thinking we need folks to post pictures of them at their "race" but how would I post them here or should I make a FB page for this or something? I think this is a great way to raise money but to raise awareness I think I am going to go for something like my "Marathon a day for a Month" idea, I just might have to put it off until after my 100 mile race.

And finally Bonking... Oh man was my 19.25 miles tough this AM. First I only took 2 bananas with me, that is clearly not enough but, secondly I think my legs are starting to get a little snippy about this training. I wanted to press through to the end of Chloe's School year with 100 mile weeks but, I might have to take a week off to let my legs and foot rest a bit, booooooooooooooo. No one likes to rest but, it may be a necessity.
Happy Running All! Will let you know what I figure out about a rest week. Bleck!
