I think 2014 was a reminder not to take things for granted!
 
AMEN! I don't know about you...

Please take a look at this video.  My run coach is taking on any incredible journey in September.  He has such a heart for those families that lost loved ones as a result of 911, for the children of those families and for our military. 

Please share to all your friends.  Please donate if you can.  Follow his facebook page or website.  Who knows maybe run some miles with him in September!

Strides and stretches and then light jog warmup to get ready for performance workout.  Had interval workout last night 5x800s finishing each time up an incline.  Can I say being pushed by an "Ironman Woman" is not a good idea on the 4th and 5th interval.  But it is all about making me stronger.    Do something today to make yourself stronger!!

Early registration deadline for the Blum 5K in Cary NC is March 1st (Saturday).  The Race will take place on March 22nd at 9 am at Bond Park in Cary.  Please pass this along and come out to support a very dear friend and brave man as he continues to fight cancer!!

I posted a website about one of the run coaches at my gym that is planning a 231 mile run from the pentagon to site of the 911 memorial in NYC to raise money and awareness for left behind.  Jeremy is a really neat individual and thought that you might would like to check his fb page to see him trainings and updates, and maybe even donate to his cause if you feel led.  Certainly an inspiration!

Check out this event a run coach, Jeremy, at our club is dedicating himself to. You might find it interesting to follow his progress or even encourage him on this incredible journey.

The 3rd annual Blum 5k will be on Saturday March 22 at Bond Park in Cary NC.  If you are around, come out for the run or walk, it doesn't matter.  This event is raising money to help beat cancer!  Not to mention is a great way to support my great friend Scott Blum.  Also, there is a silent auction that takes place the day of the race and has some wonderful items for bid.
