Remember my post a few weeks ago? Well, I made that next step! Spoke with Kate, the area campaign coordinator of Team in Training for the Richmond and Charlottesville area and I paid my registration fee – got the paperwork going…and I am all signed up for the team!
As shown above, I will be training for the 2012 Shamrock Marathon being held March 18 in Virginia Beach.
This will be my first event FUNDRAISING in conjunction with TRAINING. It is a little bit overwhelming, I admit, but Kate was incredibly helpful and encouraging in all of the explanations she gave regarding the program. I am incredibly excited to join the TEAM (Train Endure Achieve Matter) and make a difference for something much bigger than me!
I will attend my first meeting in mid-November, but in the interim, I’m stoked to have a head start on the fun fundraising tools made available to us. I have set up My Fundraising Page and will meet with Kate next week to work on a personalized fundraising strategy.
Of course, I will be blogging about my experience with the program as often as I can but as I mentioned before, I am OPEN to any suggestions, comments or questions regarding every/anything related to fundraising for endurance events!
(And yes, I do realize I sound pretty darn crazy for signing up for another marathon, but living with cancer sounds a LOT harder than running 26.2 miles!)
