Race Shirt Quilt Giveaway

How would you like to have a quilt/wall-hanging made from 12 of your race shirts?  Here's your chance to have one made for you!  For each $25 donation you make toward my Team in Training fundraising, you'll have your name entered into a drawing for a 12 shirt quilt/wall-hanging.  If you donate $50, you'll get 2 entries.  Donate $75 and get 3 entries!!  Drawing will be done on November 15 and I will try my best to have the quilt done before Christmas.  Yes, I will be making the quilt myself, so not only do you get the good feeling of helping find a cure for blood cancers such as leukemia and lymphoma, but you'll get a homemade quilt of your race shirts! 

Entering is a simple 3 step process:
1)  Click on http://pages.teamintraining.org/dm/pfchangs12/laniyearicks to go to my fundraising page.
2)  Make at least a $25 donation.
3)  Post a comment to this blog post letting me know you made a donation.

What are you waiting for?  Go donate and get yourself entered!!

But wait!!  There's more!!  If I get more than $500 in donations from quilt drawing entries, I'll give away TWO quilts!  Yes, you read that right.  TWO lucky winners!!!

Thanks in advance for your donations and good luck!!

One month old already

It's hard to believe that Thomas is a month old already. Time goes by way too quickly.  At his one month check up on Friday, he was up to 9 pounds, 6 ounces and 22 1/8 inches long. The doctor said he's perfect.  The rest of last week was spent chilling at home.  I went for a few runs, and have officially started training for my half marathon now that I have my Team in Training training plan from my coach.  It feels really good to be back to running again, even though it'll take a bit to get my endurance and speed back.  Today I ran 3.6 miles, my longest run since the beginning of May!!

I know it's been a week, but I don't really have much to write about since I don't really do much.  Hmm. . .  Last Sunday the Altar Guild put a rose on the altar at church in honor of Thomas' birth. That was pretty neat.  Robert had a soccer game Wednesday evening and his team played really well.  Robert scored one of his team's goals.
