Time to donate is running out
Aug 31, 2014 by Doug Smith
Last week, I was feeling down on myself for being completely gassed after just 15 miles—until I realized that I had been battling heat, hills, unstable terrain, and almost no shade the entire way. In other words, it wasn't the longest run of the season, but it was easily the best litmus test for how I'll do in the marathon. :) The training season is winding down. We only have two long runs left this season: 17 miles in Golden Gate Park and 20 miles on the Bay Trail. As expected, they're both long and pretty.
As we wind down the training season, so too is our fundraising season coming to an end. While the marathon isn't until October 12, my fundraising deadline is less than a month away. I committed to raising $2,900, or about $75/day from now to the deadline. That may seem like a lot, but if each of pitches in, I know we'll get there. Remember that every little bit counts, even if it's just $10.
