Coach Tera, complete with Hawaiian lei, every runner's must have accessory
So as some of you may know, I am running in the Nike Women's Marathon October 19, eek! But I have been training hard (15 miles this morning, 20 miles last Sunday morning) and I think I'm up for he challenge. BUT, there is a bigger challenge out there and I am asking for your help!
Last fall I volunteered as a coach for Girls on the Run. It is an awesome group that teaches middle school girls all kinds of life lessons and skills through running. I had a great time doing it, but this year I don't have the time to devote, so I am doing the next best thing and supporting their charity, Team Tiara. I have to raise at least $262 that will be used as a scholarship to help a needy girl get to go through the Girls on the Run program. Coincidentally, it also works out to about $10.10 per mile of my marathon! So if I could get 26 buddies and bloggers to each donate $10, I'd be real close to my goal and a cute, sweet little girl would be introduced to running and learn that drugs are not a positive choice, but vegetables are!
If you want to donate, you can mail me a check, made out to me. I am also going to a meeting in a week or so after which I think I'll have a website through which you can donate.
