Whose bright idea was this anyway? So begins the training and fundraising efforts for the 2015 (5th annual) Suicide Sucks Run. It seems like a great idea until the work begins. Then there is my tendency to never be satisfied with how things went the year before so I have to be Emeril and kick it up a notch. Good Lord, what was I thinking?
So where to begin? First I am utilizing the services of Memorial Health’s Performance Training department. While this is a major benefit, this girl isn’t used to actually doing anything but physically putting in the miles. This year I’m being taught the correct mechanics and training tools. However, it’s a lot of work! I hate exercise and curse my genetics daily. This is a whole new world for me. This old dog is learning new tricks and sorry folks, I might not even puke this year. I know that’s your favorite part.
Also, today running my first long run of the season I had a very hefty goal for fundraising creep into my mind. I need everyone’s help to make it too. We all know once I make my mind up, I become obsessed with my goal. I’ll let you in on a secret, this may be the last year I do this. I feel compelled to explore other mediums so I want this year to be the best ever. 2015 will mark mom being gone 9 years and so I need to do this and also close a chapter. So here it is $10,000. I know……
How can you help make this dream come true? Donate whatever u can, spread the word to friends, family and anyone who will listen. Do you know any business owners who would like to be on my list of sponsors? No minimum to be included. Just a donation and the willingness to be a part of something special and so important. Oh and a photo op with me
More to come. You know me, I’ve always got hair brained ideas especially when running. Now go straight to your 2015 calendars and mark May 9th down. Don’t miss the 2015 Suicide Sucks Run.
Much Love, Amanda
