Afterward I got to do a lot of socializing (which I love) and I saw plenty of my YMCA friends since that is who put on this race. Cathy is just one of those people that always puts things in perspective for me. She and I get ready together sometimes in the morning (back when I did the day-job thing!) and we would chat. Previously she was a smoking, non-exercising, not such a great healthy eater in her old life. These days she's working out, sometimes twice a day, eating healthier (after working with yours truly) and quit smoking! It's so great to see her losing weight and she's been doing some 5k's trying to improve her time. Talk about turning your life around. It just goes to show you..
Yep, I agree. Thanks for everyone who came out and volunteered for this race, cheered and helped to make it possible. Thanks to my coach Jesse from QT2 who forces me out of my aerobic comfort zone and who helps me see improvement on a weekly basis!! Finally, thanks to all my sponsors, Top Gear Bicycle, Powerbar, BlueSeventy, Newton and to my charity partner Ballou Skies. You all are a part of my team and I am thankful to be a part of yours. I could never do this without you!!
Don't forget!! I'd like to raise $1000 by Cedar Point (Sept 9th) for Ballou Skies. I have $100 to start with in the kitty! Please help if you can by DONATING HERE and putting my name in the form! Thank you in advance for your help in reaching this important goal!!!
