In Case You Didn't Know Already . . .

This week, I actually feel like I'm in training for a Marathon.  I know.  I've BEEN in training  for a marathon but the miles are starting to look really big to me. Sunday's run was fifteen miles - in hilly, rocky, lovely Queeny Park.  I surprised myself by finishing without the usual moment of despair that seems to happen with every long run.

And yesterday, in the middle of the week, I ran an 8 mile tempo run.  8 miles.  As a mid-week tempo.  That's when I really got it into my skull - and into the rest of me - its really happening.  I just might pull this thing off.  I might actually run 26.2 miles and live to tell about it.  Wow.

Speaking of pulling this off, friends, the time is getting short.  I am launching my full fledge Begging for Money campaign - starting here and extending to friends and family (be ready for the email, Ma), work and hopefully some public venues where I can wear my tshirt and ask strangers to give me there cash.  Well not me but my buds at Wine To Water.  Doc is in Haiti right now, bringing bio filters to the people of Haiti.  As you probably know, they are in dire need of clean water over there right now.  You can click on the video in my sidebar to get a glimpse of what they're doing over there.  If you double click it, you can get the full screen.  Maybe a super-techie out there (that does not mean you, spam robots!) can tell me how to make the video viewable in my sidebar.  Its beyond my skills. 

ANYWAY - the time is now friends.  If you can and want to help out, even if its just $1.00 or so, please do.  You can visit my fundraising page or go directly to Wine To Water. Tell your friends and family, tell your enemies.  Please, help us out - this is an urgent but fixable problem.  Love to all of you still reading and those of you who happened here by accident!  Peace out for now.
