Finally, at long last, I bought myself a new pair of running shoes. They are the same ones I had before, just two years newer.
I must say, I had not a clue how worn out my old shoes were. It was like running on pillows! All nice and cushy, and shockingly my calves didn't have shooting pains up the front anymore.
But why did I need new shoes?
And for that matter, why did BENJIE buy himself a pair of running shoes?
Why that's because not only am I running the half marathon for Chai Lifeline this year, but so is BENJIE!
What do they say? The family that runs together?
So this will be year FOUR for Team Lifeline for me, year one for Benjie for Team Lifeline.
Since we are a family team, Benjie and I have committed to raise $6,000 for Chai Lifeline.
Sounds a little daunting, huh? It certainly is. But Chai Lifeline is an organization that I am passionate about. Dovi has gone to Camp Simcha Special for the past six summers, for two weeks of fun and happiness. All the money that we raise goes straight to fund Chai Lifeline programs. I like to think that my fundraising sends Dovi to camp.
Won't you consider a donation? C'mon, you know you want to! Every donation gets us closer to the goal. I believe we're up to about $4,500 now...help us hit $6,000 by the end of December!
I'd love to give you a direct link to click to sponsor Benjie and me. But since I took our last name off the blog, I can't. Darn I'm silly. So if you want to sponsor me (remember, you really, really, REALLY want to!) email me at firstname.lastname@example.org I'll email you back with the link to my sponsorship page.
OR if you know my in real life and know my last name (like about 99.9% of you), go to wwww.teamlifeline.org, click on "sponsor a runner", and enter my name: Sara P.......
Thank you all for your support!!!
GO TEAM LIFELINE!
