I've decided on a 5k!
Yeah so I've been talking the last few weeks about what kind of 5k I should sign up for.. well I finally found one that interests me! The Mayor's Race 5-k Run/Walk. It's considered to be one of the 'fun runs' as a warm up for the annual Run the Rock marathon and half-marathon that happens the very next day at White Rock Lake. I'm just going to do the 5-k though because for one, I am too broke to sign up for the other races, lol, and for two this race is actually closer to me since it's being held at Fair Park in Dallas the day before. So it's bright and early Saturday monring December 3rd. I know I was wanting to do one in like October or November, but the more I thought about it, the more I decided December sounds like a much better idea. Hopefully I will be either really close or at goal by that point and I will have more time to train! The best part about this one though is that it raises money for the Scottish Rite Children's Hospital. I really wanted to find one that helped kids so this is perfect!! :) I think it'll be a great end to 2011 for sure. It's a $20 sign up fee and you have to use a credit card to do it online so my mom said ask her about it on her next payday. Sweet deal. As soon as I get signed up I will link you guys to my fundraising page and ya'll can donate money to these kids!! :D Yay! If any of you are anywhere near the Dallas area I fully expect ya'll to come on out and run the race too or at least be there to cheer me on! lol.
