You guys have really helped me get closer to my goal digit!

So close!

I’m super pumped about the Chicago Marathon. It’s really helped inspire my runs this week. Starting with a 12 miler with WRRC.

The next day I did some hill repeats on my run. Why not?

Looks like a bunny-camel.

And of course, I have to follow it up with yoga to help keep me centered and strong.

Caption says it all.

I can’t spell gud, butt at least I finally kept my tongue in my mouth. Yeah, it’s Snapchat – add me: piratebobcat

What else is inspiring this week – oh yeah, watching the Boston Marathon! I especially loved stalking tracking all my friends who were there. Y’all did some amazing times! Including my man Logan, who rocked a 2:31! Yes, that’s a full 26.2 in 2:31!

So there it is. Rockin and rollin! Keepin on and remaining calm. Bring it on, brah!

My Big Secret Revealed & a Gift for YOU!

I’m sorry I left you hanging in my last post. I had to take several days to align my ducks (by height) (which FYI, didn’t work out so well as they don’t like being crittersized).

But I digest.

So here’s what I was holding back from y’all: I’m running the Chicago Marathon for charity in October!!!

Do what the words say.

Do what the words say.

Yes, I’m raising funds to help end Alzheimer’s. Why did I pick this charity? Well, my grandfather passed away a few years ago from this disease.

The gramps and baby me.

If you don’t know, Chicago has a lottery system now for registering. But, since I decided to go the charity route, I get a guaranteed entry. But up now I have to raise at least $1000.

My grandparents a few years ago.

So here’s me asking you to donate. You can do so by GOING TO THIS PAGE.

But wait, there’s more!

When you do donate, I will make a personalized Instagram photo or Vine video for you! Just click on those two links to see what you might be getting!

This is one example of my Instagram pics.

I also made a super hi-tech short video where I explain all this:

So to sum up:

1. I’m running the Chicago Marathon for charity.

2. If you donate, you get a personalized Instagram photo or Vine video.

3. It’s a win-win for everyone!

Again, you can DONATE HERE.

Thanks so much in advance!

P.S. – If you want to remain anonymous, that’s cool too.

Social Run and Mustachioed Fun

I went to my fav social run last night.  It was great to see so many familiar faces!  Went a little further than a 5k at a decent pace – so much easier to do with other people to help pace you!  Towards the end, it started to ache on my lower calf/upper achilles (calfilles?).  I don’t think it will be anything major if I don’t over do it until it heals.

I know what you're thinking, but no, there was absolutely no photoshopping done to add in runners who missed the photo op.

This social run had an ulterior motive – to raise funds for the Boston Police Foundation.  You can donate HERE.

It’s meant for them because they are on the Marathon course.  As part of this, you’re supposed to grow a “bostache”.  I missed that memo, but my friends didn’t.

I also missed the sweatband memo.

Fortunately, I always keep a backup bostache on hand.  Unfortunately, I also missed the sweatband memo.

Mustachioed friend on the left is my super speedy (last 13.1 was 1:07) buddy Logan Sherman.  He’s running Boston on Monday.  We’re all wishing him luck!  If you’re watching the race in person, online, or on TV.  Look for him and cheer!

I have a ways to go before qualifying for Boston.  But in the meantime, I’ll be running this virtual version:  Boston Marathon World Run    Join me if you can!

Anyways, after the social run, we got social!

Girls Night Out!

Girls Night Out!

Good peeps.  Good cause.  Good times.

How bout you?  Any social runs lately?  How’s the wooly worm on your upper lip coming in?  Any Boston Marathon plans (watching, running, donating, etc. etc.)?
