39.3 miles for Ella, my honoured princess
Aug 30, 2012



For the last three years, I have been blessed to be a part of the Team in Training family. I have made lasting friendships and have met amazing individuals! I am excited to announce that I am training for my 5th Team in Training event, and what an event it is going to be . . .


In January 2013, I will travel to Disney World in Orlando, Florida, to particpate in "Goofy's Race and a Half Challenge"!


Goofy's challenge is a 39.3-mile adventure held over two days. I will run the Half Marathon (13.1 miles) on Saturday, followed by the Marathon (26.2 miles) on Sunday.


And by now you may be asking yourself WHY am I doing this crazy event? For two reasons which are very dear to my heart.


First, I am training in honor of one special little girl who is a total Disney nut! Ella is a brave 7 year old who has fought cancer for close to half her life.


Can you imagine, half her life!?

Think about it! Can you imagine fighting cancer for half YOUR life?


Second reason, of course, is that I am once again raising money for cancer research.


Did you hear the news? We've made progress! In the last year, researchers have made advances in cancer treatment! BUT we still have a long way to go.

So how can you help? Please sponsor me! Any amount, no amount is too small . . . as the saying goes, will it be YOUR dollar that finds the cure for cancer?


My goal is to raise $100 for each mile I am training for.


So here's the math

39.3 miles x $100 = $3,930 total!



Here's two ideas on an amount to donate!


1. In honor of Ella, divide your age in half and donate that amount.

(So if your 40, that's only $20).


~OR~


2. Sponsor me $1 for each mile. That's only $39.30!

Think about it, donating $39.30 versus running 39.3 miles . . . you've got the easy part!


********IN THE PAST I HAVE HAD QUESTIONS ABOUT WHETHER TEAM IN TRAINING PAYS MY TRAVEL EXPENSES. THE ANSWER IS NO. I PERSONALLY WILL PAY FOR MY AIRFARE TO DISNEY WORLD.*************


Thank you once again for your support.

As always, here's to Ella and the Team in Training family!

GO TEAM!!
