This weeks running mileage was 24! We are starting to bump up Wednesday mileage to 7 from 3 and Thursday 3 to 4 miles. Every two weeks we will increase another mile and our long run this week was scaled back to 10 miles…completely doable on the treadmill. I am hoping that from now on, we can begin our long runs outside (if I can find someone to watch girls) because next week we are up to 15 miles….crazy. I remember when I thought 13.1 was ridiculous.
This past Saturday, I attended the Spring Fling for Women at the Egan Center in Anchorage with the TNT. They had a LLS table set up and volunteers were allowed to take things to sell and try to fundraise. I volunteered for the 10-2 shift, thinking my headbands would be a huge hit..NOPE! The doors opened at 10a and our table was on the lower level in the back corner, so we didn’t get much activity compared to upstairs – plus, it was FREEZING and we were between kidney testing and other blood testing areas…not the most popular. I was able to sell one headband to a fellow TNT member 🙂
Hoping for better results on Friday. This is the silent action that TNT is hosting and I am super excited with some of the donations I received.
A gift certificate for 2 kids at Anchorage’s new Kaleidoscape.
A beautiful Christmas themed table runner donated and made by my Aunt!
Infant hats hand-made by a friend and owner of Lexie Loops.
I then went and got some flannel material and made some flannel fringed blankets to go with the hats!
My sewing isn’t perfect but I thought they turned out cute and I hope that someone will want the sets!
A laptop case from my friend, Kristina Dick, checkout her website over at Thirty-One!
I will also be throwing in this Thirty-One pop cross purse with the laptop case!
A family photo session with Alyssia at Griffin Family Photography!
A $100 gift certificate for Feather Skin & Body Studio.
I will also be throwing in a couple of headbands!
I think I was able to gather some really good donations for this silent auction and I want to send them a THANK YOU for being so generous to help me & LLS out.
Also, I had an anonymous donation…WOW, THANK YOU!
As always, head over to my Team in Training page to make your donation 🙂
Thanks for reading,
~Brandy – running in honor of you, Grandpa!
