However, I am doing well on the school part (super busy but still excited about it) and the no snacks/treats part. I'm at 3 weeks and 2 days and still no snacks (having utilizied the cheat days yet). Oh... but last night... who how I wanted a snack. I guess that's what happens when I'm heading home at 10 pm for the first time all day.
And, finally, I'm doing well on the running part. I'm bumping up this miles really fast but I'm doing it. My race might be slow, but it's going to be completed. So... here's where you come in or loyal listeners.... I need help.
This race that I'm doing is the Marine Corps Marathon in Washington DC. I work and run an organization called Safe Kids Utah. Our parent organization in headquartered in DC. Safe Kids USA is a charity sponsor of the Marine Corps Marathon. In order for us to participate in this event, Safe Kids USA and Safe Kids Utah are raising funds to help support our organization. Safe Kids is run completely, 100% on donations. We are a public health organization whose mission is to help prevent unintentional injury and death to children 0-14 years old. We provide education through providing car seats to families in need, distributing smoke alarms or bicycle helmets or educating parents and caregivers about water safety, fire safety, and home safety, these proven initiatives help prevent the number one killer of children in the United States--preventable injury. This work can only be done through donations, whether large or small, to help complete our mission.
So... I'm taking it upon my self to raise $5000 for Utah. However, I'm hoping to have some friends and families who know of the importance of this mission and what I'm doing to be able to help with some donations.
