Polar vortex can't stop me
Last Saturday was my first post-Dopey run. I did 8 miles with my friend Lisa, just a simple loop out towards Tewksbury and Andover, we skipped the big hill and went around it (the elevation change is the same but it takes you over some gentler inclines that don't really feel like hills). It was cold out, but not too bad, sort of spitting wet snow like stuff a little, just enough to be annoying, but too warm to be snow and too cold to be rain. I felt really good since I had rested all week following Dopey. I was ready to get going again and it was my first official training run for Boston.
My fundraising has sort of stalled this month, after the Holidays and before a few fundraising events I have planned I'm not worried, but it would be nice to keep my momentum going and get a few donations here and there. I mailed out about 50 follow up letters plus hundreds of emails after Dopey updating people on my progress and sharing news about upcoming events. I really hope that I can be at $8K by the end of February. Right now I am right around $7000 if I count the company matches that haven't been credited to my page yet.
