Summer Times & Giveaway

Guess who’s home! After 11 weeks of being away from all things social media, blogging, and running I’m excited to be home and getting back to life.  I finished Basic training for the United States Army last week in Oklahoma.  Brooklyn and my mom came up for graduation and our running friends Jen and David came too! After 2+ months it was a warm welcome to see non-Army friends and family again.

Now it’s time to get back to the world of running, fundraising, blogging, and selfie-ing.  Starting with this one.


There are 11 weeks to go until the TCS New York City Marathon.  That means it’s time to pick up fundraising and get really get ready to go run my first World Major Marathon! I have several giveaway and raffle opportunities coming up to benefit the John Ritter Foundation for Aortic Health.  Starting with this one!

There will be no donation required to jumpstart fundraising. I repeat, NO DONATION REQUIRED! All you need to do is tweet, share, instagram, snapchat, whatever it is that you do to help spread the word about the Ritter Foundation and their mission to prevent premature deaths due to aortic dissections by identifying genetic risk factors and individuals that are at risk.

One of my favorite friends in the world donated a few of her pressed penny bracelets to raffle off and I want to give one out just for helping to spread awareness.  First you must visit and like my Facebook page.

Tweet the tweet. (Up to once per day)
