Eco Slow Marathon Finish

Eco Slow Marathon

I had a great time at the Eco Slow Marathon Inba Japan yesterday. We picked up trash around Lake Inba along the way. I even won a trophy for Clean Hero for my trash pickup efforts! The whole event was like a big party. Everyone was so friendly too. I wore my Hello Kitty ears and carried Hello Kitty on my belt. At the finish line they welcomed us with Daiko drummers. This was marathon number 35 for me.

Cross Country Skiing

What a beautiful day to go skiing!  I went to Anchorage and skied with my best friend, Diane along the complex collection of trails along the Anchorage Hillside.  I never have any idea where I am on those trails.  I just follow her!  I can see that I am certainly not in the best skate ski shape this year.  Of course it was my first time on the skate skis this winter.  That could have something to do with it!  I can't believe how slow I was especially on the uphill sections, with the other skate skiers flying by like I was standing still!  I could definitely have walked or run faster.  But it was fun and that is what really mattered today.  It has been a busy hectic week and today was my relax and enjoy day. 


No back to my final packing and getting ready to head off to Japan for the Eco Slow Marathon and the Shikoku Pilgrimage.  I have received a few donations to my latest Team In Training event.  Thanks so much to Kate and Dorothy.

New York City Marathon

Finally, I am once again signed up for a marathon with Team In Training to fight cancer.  New York City Marathon on November 2nd 2014.  My plan is to fly directly from Madrid, Spain to New York after I spend a few weeks walking the Camino Portuguese from Lisbon, Portugal to Santiago de Compostela, Spain.  I am running the Rock 'n' Roll Lisbon Marathon on October 5th so decided to walk the Camino since I loved walking the Camino Frances last year.  It will be just the right amount of time to reach Santiago then fly to New York. 

So I am hoping to get the word out to everyone to help support me as I fundraise again to fight cancer.  I could sure use your help. Please click on the image below and make a donation for this important cause.
