Suzanne Ran(doms)

So yeah, life has a way of interrupting good intentions.  Since I last visited, I have had a pipe burst in my house, putting three quarters of my house in chaos. Not to mention work stuff.  Oh and running.  There has been running.  Some months a lot of it.  Like August.  September and October not so much.

Because it's been a bit I figured I would play catch up with another quick version of Randoms.

My August Miles goal - smashed it.  My goal was to reach 90 miles.  With a secret stretch goal of 100 miles for the month.  I was afraid to put it out there because well, ya know, life and because I was afraid I wouldn't be able to do it.  Despite the pipe bursting in mid August I got it done.

I also managed to reach my matching miles goal and with my personal donation of 205.00 plus the addition of the matching gift I met my St. Jude Fundraiser goal for the year.

As of this writing I am now almost  $750.00 over my initial Heroes requirement.  I am hoping to at least hit that number and would love to say that I was able to smash my fundraising goal this year. 

- Tomorrow I will be on a plane heading to the Avengers Half.  It's crazy how fast this year has gone.  But anyway, I'm just a little bit excited. 

As evidenced by the fact that I now have an entire weekends worth of Marvel gear to wear.


I am super excited about my costumes this year too.  Lady Sif for the 10k, and comic Nebula for the half. Lady Sif, just because I love her and thought it would be a fun runner friendly costume. 

 I'm specifying comic Nebula because she looks a bit different than the Guardians of the Galaxy version of Nebula (still awesome) and comic Nebula has a  tie to the Infinity Gauntlet, so it seemed to make sense. 

Who am I going to see there this year? 

Thanks again for all of your support while I continue to help St. Jude Children's Research Hospital someday be able to say that they were able to Smash Childhood Cancer.
