Team Challenge!!!!!!

Today’s blog post is long overdue. I have had a lot going on in my personal life- getting a new job, trying to find (and failing) an apartment in a new state while starting the new job, training for Team Challenge, etc.- that the blog fell to the wayside. I have not given up on it! It’s just on a little hiatus.

TEAM CHALLENGE

I would be remiss if I didn’t do a post today. Today was the Virginia Wine Country Half Marathon. For the past 16 weeks, I have trained with a team of amazing people to walk the half marathon with Team Challenge, CCFA’s endurance training and fundraising program. We were out bright and early on Saturday mornings, rain or shine, hot or cold, racking up the miles to get to this point. I am floored by how much I accomplished. Prior to March (our first training), the most physical activity I had done in recent years was hike 1-2 miles with my dog, and even that would make me wheeze. Here I was walking 10 miles and, while I was in pain, it was doable. That is an AWESOME feeling.

Team Challenge Training Update #1

A few weeks ago, I wrote about how I decided to participate in CCFA’s Team Challenge half-marathon program this year. I wanted to provide you all with an update as to how I am doing with the training and fundraising!

I am astounded by the amount of sheer support I have received, both financially and emotionally, from my friends and family as I embark on my half marathon training program! Over the past month, I’ve raised over $4,700 towards my goal of $5,000. It is so humbling to see how many people out there really support the cause that is so close to my heart and Dan’s belly.

Running for a Cure

For the past several years, I’ve heard amazing stories about people participating in the Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation of America‘s Team Challenge half marathon program. For those who don’t know, Team Challenge is a half marathon training and fundraising program. Team Challenge participants “train with professional coaches and like-minded teammates for a rewarding and exciting 13.1 mile endurance event at one of our great destination races while raising vital funds for research into these diseases. Funds raised help make new treatments possible and fuel the search for cures.”
