Tonight I attended the Fall Kickoff for Team in Training. In case you missed it I am running my first half marathon with TNT in October, the Nike Women’s Half.
I was able to meet my coaches and mentors and all the wonderful new and alum TNTers. I will be the first to say that running a half scares the hell out of me. Meeting these wonderful people really put me at ease. I CAN do it and I will ROCK it.
I find that a lot of people who don’t spend a lot of time working out ask me why I run.
Simply put, I run because I can.
Lisa commented on my announcement about TNT that those days when I don’t want to get my workout in or do my run because it will be hard, to think about all of those who can’t run. To think about all of this that I am running for, so that one day they can run too.
These runs are for all of those who can’t.
As part of my fundraising for TNT I am going to be hosting a blogger bake sale, if you would love to donate a baked good or snack please email me at cupcakekelly21 AT gmail DOT com. Anything helps and I would love help from you!
Or if you would like to donate to the cause, you can do that here.
The last thing I want to address is FitFluential
This is a great community of men and women who share a passion for fitness and a healthy lifestyle. I have only been a part of this community for a short amount of time but already have met great new people and have received a ton of support for my new adventures.
If you want to be a part of this wonderful community there are three options: Ambassadors, Influencers and Enthusiasts. Enthusiasts do not need to have a blog, I strongly suggest you head to the site now and fill out your information or apply to become an ambassador right now.
Why do you work out?
