Bust A Move

In just over 60 days, I will run walk complete the Susan G Komen Race for the Cure here in St. Louis.  I am terrified exhilarated by the very thought.  It means that tomorrow starts the training for real.  The no holds barred, I have to do this darn thing TRAINING.

This has to mean pushing myself like NEVER before!  I am so thankful for the support system that I have both online and off.  You all are truly amazing.  This is going to be the HARDEST thing that I have ever done and I will need you to support me, push me, and remind me of why I am doing this. 

I have recently gotten really good at preparing blogs in advance and setting them to post, so I hope to be able to keep that up and then just replace them with up to the minute stuff when I really need to.  At least for the next couple of months, my focus has to shift to get me through this race. 

I wish you guys could all be here to run with me and cheer me on.  Tomorrow begins day one!


  1. I am so proud of you Christie. You have had a complete change of attitude and it looks good on you. Ever since that hateful comment someone left for you, it seems like you have had an "I'll show you" attitude.

  2. I wish I could be there to run with you, too. I'll just have to be there in spirit. I KNOW you can do it! I KNOW you'll love it. The physical and mental happiness that'll follow pushing and challenging yourself for a great cause will be IN-credible!

    GO! GO!! GO!!!

  3. Woohoo! Stoked for you - can't wait to follow along with your training.

  4. That's awesome! WOw, I wish I could be there too. You can do it!

  5. Christie you can do this! And when you cross that finish line you will be so darned proud, tired yes, but proud and what an accomplishment. I can wait to hear how its going so please keep us posted on your progress!!! Pitter patter of Christie feet on that pavement - yippie!
