Sunday's racing threads

Sunday is the big day and I am so excited! This will most likely be my last post until my race report, so enjoy! :)

So, a little over a year ago, I founded this organization called helpsaveastray.com that is dedicated to raising adoptions and donations for animal shelters across the country, while raising overall awareness of adoption. With that said, I started a racing team called Team Race for Strays to help raise funds for a local animal shelter that I work closely with. One of the benefits of being a runner on Team Race for Strays for this event is a team shirt that was generously printed and donated by Austin Cotton! I picked them up yesterday, and dropped them off to the runners today. I think they turned out great! I will be rocking my shirt for my half marathon on Sunday.

Fundraising is still going on, so if you too are an animal lover like me, and feel moved to donate to Lifelong Friends (the animals shelter I'm working with on this race), you can still do so here: http://www.active.com/donate/raceforstrays. Here you will also notice that funds are down from what was anticipated. Just know that even $10 helps!

Ok - race weather - I'm not even going to speculate. The weather has been insane here; yesterday was 90 degrees with 80% humidity, today was 55 degrees and pouring rain. I'm just hoping for a happy medium between the two.

Good luck to all those who will be running this weekend! I can't wait to hear about the races.

Well, off for a short little run just to keep my legs warm!
