I woke up early so finally got to get in a little longer run today. I have to run on the treadmill while I am here in Deadhorse in the winter, so I ran my 10 miles indoors. It really gets hot inside. But that is probably better that outside where it is about 20 below zero and dark. Although, that would be quite challenging.
Only three more nights here then I can do my running at home. I may do some at the sports center, but at least it is possible to run outdoors in some places even if there is snow on the ground. I will be in Florida soon enough getting in a good long run through Disney World.
I am getting almost no donations so I knew the chances of getting the 2350 that I still needed for my Team In Training minimum were pretty slim. So I went ahead and donated $2000 last night. I figure if I am going to have to donate it anyway, I may as well get the tax deduction this year. I would much rather give it to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society than IRS anyway! I would rather cure cancer than pay off the national debt!
I will probably sign up for the Anchorage Big Wild Life Marathon and the Nike Women's Marathon with Team In Training for the fall season. I always like to have one that I can point my race4cancer.org link to.
