Countdown to Boston

2 months to go!

What the little guy does while I run!

This was my due date - but he came 2 weeks ago!! I've been able to get in about 20 miles in the last 2 weeks -slowly but surely. Yippee!

Right now the key is going to be coming up with a flexible training plan to get me to finish Boston. I don't need a personal best out there, I just want to enjoy and have fun, and raise as much money as possible in the process!

Here's a pic of running now versus a few weeks ago :

Give love - share love!

It was one week ago today that our joyful addition Nicholas came into the world! Nick is one week old! My last run was on Wednesday February 4 - 36 hours before the peanut was born - a little over 5 miles. I think it was part of helping me to go into labor which started slowly that night, and ended with Nick's arrival Friday morning Feb 6, 2 weeks early! Now I have 2 more weeks to get ready for the race, thank you Nicholas!!

Today I ran/jogged/walked one mile to see how it would feel. I took it very easy and it felt nice not to run with all of the extra luggage! I missed it at the same time, but I can't wait to do some runs with the jogger and bring my new running pal along!

A great big thank you to everyone who has donated to Dana Farber in honor of my upcoming Boston marathon! I appreciate your support and generosity! I am about $1200 from my goal and hope that I will reach it by race day April 20th! Dana Farber is an awesome charity in that 100% of the proceeds go directly to find cures and research for cancer. I feel very strongly towards this cause and hope that you will please consider giving some love and donating ANY AMOUNT today!

I am holding a random raffle for those that have already donated and those that donate in the month of February for a door prize - donate today!

Please donate to my mommy's cause! She tired me out by running with me for 9 months!
