44 - days until we start the Dopey Challenge.
47 - days until we're done.
914 - miles I've run this year.
97.1 - miles I've run so far this month.
107.2 - miles I ran in June (my "best" month).
38 - miles I'm scheduled to run from this Thursday to Sunday.
135.1 - November totals (if I stick to the schedule).
7,215 - dollars I have raised thus far for Team TSA.
2,504 - dollars Anne has raised thus far for Team TSA.
789 - dollars Darren has thus far for Team TSA.
655 - dollars Kyle has raised thus far for Team TSA.
11,163 - total dollars raised (thus far) by my family of runners.
496 - number of dollars Anne is still trying to raise to meet her $3,000 goal.
Some of these numbers make me proud (like $11,163 and 914 miles for the year) while others make me super nervous (38 miles in 4 days this week) and still others make me excited (only 44 days until we lace 'em up and start). I am really looking forward to this week - only one Thanksgiving this year, which will mean more couch time and football watching for me (yay!). And I've always loved the Thanksgiving Four Miler - but this year we have a ton of people running (9 to be exact) and that should be super fun. And then to follow that up with 6 on Friday, 9 on Saturday and 19 on Sunday ... I am hoping that is a nice confidence builder as we start to see the finish line in sight.
And not to get too sappy, but anyone reading this who has not yet donated, please think about making a donation to Anne. She is so close to her goal and every little bit helps. Training for a marathon is difficult. Training for a half marathon followed by a full marathon the next day is even more difficult. Training alone is impossible. I couldn't do this - I can't do this - without Anne. Simple fact. So, if your inclined, click the link to the right and make a donation. And feel free to pass this along.
Thanks and Happy Thanksgiving!
