“Here I go…”

“… again on my own. Goin’ down the only road I’ve ever known….” (Do you know this Whitesnake song? I would totally add an audio clip, but that sounds complicated :-))

Anyhow, Greetings from Minnesota! It’s about 20 degrees out, and I’ve got an announcement.

Here I go to Fargo! Yup, I’ve finally pressed the button, paid my entry fee, and signed up for the Fargo Marathon. I’m also running to raise money for a charity that does life-changing humanitarian work around the world – Team World Vision. The accounting major inside me did the research on their financials statements and policies, and I really believe they manage their money well with minimal overhead, and use their resources where they are needed most.

Check out the new Fargo Marathon page in my blog’s header and My Fundraising Page.

Have a great Monday everybody! I’ll be back with cow tales soon.

    That’s awesome! I’m originally from ND and have heard amazing things about the Fargo race. I really wanted Fargo to be my first half marathon, but a move to Chicago this year complicated things, so I’m running my first half here instead. Maybe next year! Good luck!

    I did a silent cheer when I saw that you registered! Yay! I’m excited for you!

    I’m still battling whether or not I want to run a full. It’s not going to happen this year. Maybe 2012.

    I can’t wait to read about the rest of your training! What does J think about it?

      Haha – he seems fine with it, especially because I’ve gotten a lot better about doing my runs early so they don’t interfere with daily life as much 🙂 I think he also understands that it was gonna happen sometime. I think you’ll know when you get the marathon bug… you are rocking your races so much right now that I think you could be happy continuing to lower your 1/2 PR or doing a full – all depends on what you want to do. Thanks for the cheer!
