Nike Womens Half

Let’s Just say, My Journey to my first Half Marathon, STARTS RIGHT NOW!!!!!!

I have 13 weeks and 5 days until the BIG EVENT! I’ve had some setbacks! My ankle is better, it has not been bothering me, I had two massages next week and started seeing Chiropractor again for my hips/back. I am feeling about 80% better with that issue. So, with the clock running down it’s time to get serious and take this to the next level.

The FIRST level — Confession — I am at the starting point of not being able to run a whole mile with out walking! However, I can HIIT it for a few miles, so that’s a good thing! I know this is a 100% mental challenge that I will have to get over, in order to be successful!

Team

I am so thankful to be working with Team In Training for this BIG goal/milestone in my life!

I have received so much support from the Team and my Mentors!

I re-visited an amazing Guest Post Five Tips for Setting (and Reaching!) Your Running Goal   written by: Katie — at Live Half Full.

In her post she linked —

Top Ten Fundraising Tips for Runners

I really needed this today, in re-visiting her post.

So far, I have not raised any money for LLS — My Fundraising page for The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.

Well, It’s time to get my rear in gear and get going on my GOAL!

My Ideas so far…

* I am trying to volunteer at The County Far in the Bar to raise money in August. I am also, going to talk to local bars.

* I am running a raffle! For every dollar donation, I will be running a raffle to win a Gift Card from Starbucks, Amazon, and iTunes.

* I am working on sponsors, for every Five dollar donation I will be running a raffle with a big prize. The contents are still to be announced.  I will be adding in some stuff myself so it will be an amazing Prize!!!

Question

Have you ever done fund raising for a Marathon?

* What worked for you and what didn’t work for you! I am totally open to suggestions tips, tricks, etc.

* Any and all suggestions are appreciated! And, if you can spare a dollar I will start adding in names for the raffle!

I hope you are all having an amazing week!!!

XOXO,

Laurie~*
