: NDR - My very first race!
: London_Pyr_Lover May 20, 2009, 03:01:15 AM
Some of you may know that I've been going through a total lifestyle renovation!  I've applied to the RCMP, and have made it through the first 2 parts of their application process, the written test and a super hard physical test that I've been training super hard for, for 2 months now!  Well, I started out with a Learn to Run clinic, and am going to be running my very first race on Sunday!  I'm running to help raise money for Ovarian Cancer Research!  It's no marathon mind you (only 5Km), but it's a good start to hopefully a whole lifetime of running!

I've set a personal fundraising goal for myself at $150, and I thought, since you guys are my closest Cyber friends, I'd hit you up too!  ;D

Here's a link to my donation page, if you feel like checking it out.  If you can't donate, I'd love to hear some words of encouragement from my friends as well! (

Congratulation s! I don't think I could run even if a bear was after me.
