But of course

So...the week I start to train for my race, I throw my back out during my final deadlift rep at the gym. grrr. It hurt to walk and kept me awake at night. boo. Then, as soon as my back gets better, I get the flu. It is so strange to me. This has honestly been one of the worst years of my entire life and it is ending poorly as well. Time for me to make some changes. I don't think that life will get much better if I just stay stagnent. I hope I can still raise the funds needed and get training done for this race in April. I havent even been to one of the trainings yet. Hmmm. perhaps I will have to save this for a summer run, not spring. We shall see. I hope everyone has a very Merry Christmas. B

Part Deux - woo hoo!!

Greetings dear family and friends, It is with sleepy eyes and an eager heart that I write and let give you an update. Although it has been a few years since I last finished a big race, I figured I'd give it a whirl yet again. I will be teaming up with Team in Training for another half-marathon; I'm after that same 13.1 goal that has challenged me in the past. Since my last step across the finish line, my mother has passed due to pancreatic cancer and my Uncle John is now cancer free. No matter where the disease finds you, it is always good to do your part and fight for a positive cause. In my previous posts, I gave several statistics on the disease, cause, and finances involved; feel free to reference them. So...here comes the fun part, waking up on a cold, snowy morning and meeting up for a cup of encouragement and a run. Along with the training involved, I am asked to raise $1500. Will you partner with me in this adventure? I will keep this site updated and keep you informed of both my physical and financial progress. Thank you in advance for all you do and I pray that this finds you well! with a promise to keep you laughing, Britt http://pages.teamintraining.org/rm/pltrvrhm16/bcortesy
