light the night!

last night we were in California for the Leukemia and lymphoma society's light the night walk. It was neat to see a bunch of people there to support the cause, and to see the people walking with white "survivor" balloons, (including my mom!)
The event last night raised over $40,000!
One thing I think I am going to sign up for now is the Team in Training. It is a team you are a part of that trains you to run/walk a marathon or half marathon, (which is what I would do... it is 13.1 miles.) I think it would be really good for me to help motivate me more to lose weight and get in shape. =) The marathon I would aim for would be next June in Seattle. You have to raise enough money to cover your expenses plus like 3 times that for the charity. (so like if my expenses were $500, I would have to raise $2000)
So yeah, I am waiting to get some information back from someone, I know there are meetings in Reno, so that is where I would go. I think it will be fun!

Hey! Would you maybe like company while doing this? I think it's a great idea and it would be a lot of fun to do it together!

Since we'll be living closer, maybe we could get together for walks with dogs, or just on our own!

Let me know!

Wow, that's crazy! $2000! I can barely make people donate $500. It's going to be a challenge and you will do great! It's really admirable from you. Good luck :-)
