it's the weekend ...

Sunday, November 06, 2011

and what am i doing? ... running 5Ks of course.

today was the Abby Reinke Elementary School 3rd Annual Turkey Trot. it's right here in the neighborhood and it was their annual fund raiser. i love this instead of selling chocolate bars, wrapping paper, cards, etc ... all that junk schools try to stick you with. families came out to do something together ... something healthy (approx 600 folks). it was a brisk morning (for social!), only 39-degrees. i plan to do it every year. it was a blast.

sunday i'm running because it's world run day. it's a world-wide virtual run. you run (or walk) today ... where/when/as long as you like and then make a contribution to your favorite non-profit organization. here are the details of my team ...i'm running with my girlfriend here in temecula, ca ... my girlfriend "sox" is running in san diego ... DD is running in durham, nc ... sister is walking in alexandria, va, ... parents are walking in denver, co ... and brother is running in aurora, co. we're going to text our results.

it's not too late to join me sparkies ... check it out at

    I so agree with you about the idiotic fund raisers- I started just writing a check to my kids PTO at the beginning of every year and saying PLEASE do not send home any fundraising stuff.
