Racing and fundraising (I hate doing it, but I'm gonna anyway!)

I'm still flying pretty high off my race on Saturday. I'm not nearly as sore as yesterday. I can move much easier. Honestly? My Italian has magic hands. He really does. (No!! Not like that! Geesh!! . . . then again . . . that's another post for another blog!)

Last night I had him rub my lower back and legs and they feel SO SO SO much better. He also stretched out both of my shins and rubbed those. No pain in the right leg, but I have a minor shin splint in the left! ARGH! I did make an appt to go see my GP about this Wednesday afternoon!

I've not had shin splints EVER before. So I'm finding this really annoying.

I've just signed up for my next race! May 8. Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure. I walked it last year, and am hoping to run at least 1/2 of it this year (thus the visit to my doc. I may be over hyping this, but I CAN'T break anything right now . . . or be laid up for that matter).

But (here comes the sales pitch . . . can you feel it?) I'm trying to raise at least $100 for the race. (I picked that $$ because I knew I could pay that on my own!)

Honestly?, I'm really not comfortable doing this. So ya know what . . . this is the link to my fundraising page:

And that's all I'm going to say about that. (Sorry, I hate fundraising . . . even for good causes! Yerm . . .)

Thus concludes a VERY uncomfortable blog post! (Well, the latter half anyway.) 

I do have more fun and interesting stuff coming up! I promise! (and less whining about my sore muscles maybe! HA!!)
