Today I received an email from the assistant professor of Ivy Tech Community College about the upcoming Relay for Life. They need volunteers to help with the relay. I am super excited about this because I can run and volunteer! I immediately emailed her back asking if I could help. She responded by asking me my t-shirt size and assured me they need volunteers who run and who just want to help. I messaged m friend T to ask if she would like to volunteer with me and she said she yes as long as she is not scheduled to work. I am very excited because, if you have been following my blog, you know that I have been working out and training for 5k runs and that my first run is supposed to be on July 4th but since I will be volunteering here I am thinking about making the Relay or Life my first run and that will be June 13-14th. I also love the fact that this run is to help find the cure for cancer! I do not know a single person who has not been affected in some way by cancer either their friends or family had it or they have had it. My boyfriend’s sister died at a very young age from it so I think this will be important to him and his family.
Besides the Relay for Life news, I have decided that today I am going to attempt to run a mile nonstop so that I can time myself. I also want to time my boyfriend because he is try to get a police position and he has to pass his physical and do better than everyone else to get the job. I cannot wait to find out our times and write them on here because after a couple months I would like to time each of us again and compare times. Up until now I have been running a quarter of a mile then walking a quarter then running then walking and so on until I run one mile walk one mile. It will be interesting to see if we can run an entire mile.
June is going to be an exciting month! The pools open, the sun is shining, and bring on the 5k runs!!
