It has been a long time :)

Hello World!

It has been a long time since my last post.  Sorry about that!  I forget how busy the Spring is and how it's the end-of-the-year this and the final of that.  And even though I'd like this to be a thoughtful post, it is likely to be short as I have to go sell a few Slushies at the school concession stand!  Don't even want to think of what's in those...

So, let's do updates:

  • Training...  It's going great.  My addiction to running has never been stronger and I'm seeing my training times getting better.  I might be an official group #1 member now... A back-of-the-pack group one member but group #1 is faster than group #2.  I hope that I don't offend anyone by this!  I'm still running long in preparation for Easter Island.  I've got 20 miles to go on Saturday so I hope that all of the path water stations are open!
  • I've been working on creating letterhead, business cards, donation card and my 'please help me by donating' letter.  It's really coming together as it looks both professional and fun.  I hope to get the letters out next week before leaving for Chile!
  • I have a friend helping me design a web page and I can't thank her enough!  Go Cheryl!
So now that the Spring pollen may be over -- I say 'may' because I keep thinking that the last surge is really the last -- and before the heat and humidity begins -- though it's really not too bad -- we're in for some of our most enjoyable Washington running weather!  Everything is beautiful and green and happy.  What a great day for a run....

Cheers!  RunningBrooke
