I have had some exciting developments for the Jog for Joubert Syndrome team in the past week. I had two different JS families contact me interested in teaming up with me for the cause. One family is thinking of hosting a 5 or 10K in their home town and working with J4JS. And another family is planning to run in events this summer and raising money while training/racing. Yeah!!!! I’m so excited that we are adding some fresh faces to the team!!!! Thumbs Up! to the newbies!!!! I hope to do an introduction post for them once I get some more information about them (and if they are agreeable to joining my crazy blog world!).
And speaking of races, I am in the very very early stages of considering putting together a race of my own. Right now it is only a consideration, as I have NO idea where to start with planning. If I do decide to really do it, it will probably take place sometime next spring. I will keep you updated on planning progress, and if you have any pointers or ideas for me, by all means…..help a sista out!!!!
Now some Thumbs Ups! from my readers:
Alana @ Running42km.blogspot.com I looked back in my old running logs and discovered that I have been running for a full year as of 25 May. It seems hard to believe that this time last year I was thinking that running 10+ 1s would be a huge challenge! Now I’m starting marathon training in 2-1/2 weeks. How AWESOME!!! I wish I knew when my running anniversary is. But because I was such a sporadic runner in the beginning its hard to track my true start point, but I think it was about this time last year. My how much changes in a year!!!!
Marcia @ Running off at the Mouth I have a 5k this Saturday–will I or won’t I finally break out the cheetah skirt? Plus I’m gonna keep on truckin’ and make it a 10k for TMB’s Rock Your Socks Race! Oh and yet another awesome giveaway is coming soon! This was from last week, I will be sure to check out your race reports!
My partner in crime “trail girl” Ashley @ Adventures of Running Mom My thumbs up is for this weekend’s long run. I’ve been looking forward to it all week. I hope it doesn’t disappoint. Hope I can join you Ashley!
I am super excited for this weekend. We have some good friends coming into town for the holiday weekend that we only get to see about once a year. Also, I am SOOOOO ready for a long weekend, I’m feeling really burnt out by the daily grind. But in honoring the true reason for this Memorial Day weekend, I would like to give a very humble Thumbs Up! to the American service men and women who have lost their lives serving in our military. No matter what your political views or stance on war, our soldiers need our support and respect. I’m embarrassed to say this but, I never really knew the real meaning behind Memorial Day until recently when I looked it up. So thank you for giving your lives for our country.
I seriously doubt there will be a “WeekEnd Re-Cap” this week, well….because there is not much to recap. One measly little 3 mile run and a questionable long run this weekend. I also don’t want to neglect our guests by blogging 🙂
If I don’t venture back into bloggy world this weekend. …..have a safe and happy Memorial Day
