Half-marathon training
Week seventeen, day three

There’s a Chinese proverb that says, “Do not fear going forward slowly; fear only to stand still.” Two miles this morning and I decided to do them on the track at the gym. After I was done, a trainer approached me and told me that he liked to work with new people (although he has seen me at the gym before, so I think he meant out-of-shape people). Seventeen weeks ago the suggestion that I needed help would have bothered me. Today I just told him no thanks. I may run slow, but I’m a runner and I have my training down!

I was also worried today about my fundraising. Even after we finish with the football squares, I’ll still be about $500 short of my goal and I’m not sure I’ll get there. And then one of my co-workers handed me a $10 contribution on the condition that I not sell her any more chocolate bars.

Yep, I may be going slow, but I’m still going! $490 and 9 donors to go!
