Rewards for Running

It's funny how things work out sometimes, isn't it?

Last night was my first official training run for the Pittsburgh Marathon. It almost didn't happen.

After a crushing Steelers loss on Sunday night that kept me up too late I almost skipped it - "I'll do it tomorrow" I told myself.

And then I thought about the greyhounds and all of the people behind me and the Steel City Greyhounds. 

I chose to run, negotiating that a 3 mile run would be sufficient. As I settled into my pace I pushed for 5 - and was rewarded this morning with another $50 in donations!

I can't say "Thank You!" enough to all of those who continue to support this organization through me.

To date I have raised $400 as an individual team member. That's 40% of my $1,000 goal - and we still have 3 months to make a significant impact in the quality of life of the greyhounds rescued by SCG.
