Charity Miles

Happy Friday!

This week really flew by.  Having Monday off of work/school was a huge plus and we were able to go to the movies and see Iron Man 3.  I really liked it, but I’m pretty easy when it comes to liking movies.  Other than that it was a pretty low key and much needed relaxing weekend.

Exercise wise it was a very low week.  I did strength training on Tuesday & Thursday but no cardio all week…. oops.  Normally I do Wednesday and Friday… today we decided to sleep in and it was wonderful.  Wednesday there was something a little more important than the gym, I had an ultrasound and found out that we are having a BOY!!  So exciting and it feels that much more real now.  It’s crazy how fast everything is going!  Now comes the fun things like finding a name 🙂

Luckily there is still plenty of time 🙂

During the week, I found out some really exciting news that connects my love of running with a great cause!  Have you heard of Charity Miles?  It is an app for your phone that uses the phone’s GPS to track your running distance.  Even more exciting is that you can choose different charities to support, and 25cents for every mile ran/walked is donated to that charity.  Pretty cool, right!  Even more exciting is one of the charities that was recently added.  It’s called She’s the First, and one of my roommates from college founded it and has made it a huge success.  The mission of the organization is to provide girls around the world the opportunity to be the first in their families to get an education and graduate high school.  These girls don’t have the same luxuries they do…. even so far as school being considered a luxury, and not a right.  It really is inspiring seeing how much change can happen with a small group of people passionate about making it happen!  So you should all download CharityMiles right now and get running!  Getting those hot and sweaty miles in as the weather starts to really heat up will feel that much better knowing that it is for an amazing cause 🙂

Have a great weekend!  Make sure you leave time to be jealous of me, I will be in an MBA statistics class from 8-5 on Saturday since we didn’t have class on Monday for the holiday.
