I am walking like a deer who just learned that they had legs. I wonder if they would let me roller blade to the finish line. :)
I wrote my coach an email explaining my schedule in hopes of receiving a bit of a revised schedule and nutrition plan. I informed him that most days, I work from 6am - about 11pm and that during my night job, we are unable to eat so, I have granola bars. After writing that email, I read it back and realized what an absolute nut I am...I guarantee that he looked at that email and just simply laughed. I received a mass email back explaining running dos and donts as well as some encouragement for our hard work. I'll take it as it is and just do my best with what I have.
Every Saturday we will meet up as a team and run together, since it is 'team in training.' Saturday is our first group run and we will be having a timed 5K run. holy smokes...not to sound like a wuss, but I am so...holy smokes. I know that the distance isn't long but as a general rule, I don't usually run unless I'm being chased. Stair master - YES, stationary bike - absolutely, treadmill - only if all other machines are taken. :) I'll keep you posted on what happens. Maybe I'll volunteer to run behind everyone to protect them from the possible grizzly bear attack, you never know! hee hee. ;)
The outpouring of support for this small mission is overwhelming. I have had many notes of encouragement, offers to be a running buddy, financial donations and it gets me so pumped. I love to hear that people are getting involved and are interested in the cause. It is tremendous!!
Until next time...
