Miles for Team Gab

I signed up to do a virtual race of my choice on 365 Days of Awesome for Team Gab. Then we were hit with the snow storm and I completely forgot about it. Friday when I was reading blogs I noticed it was the last day to enter and donate. I decided that I was going to sign up and do the half marathon virtual distance over two days.  Friday, I attempted to get half the distance in but the power went out.  Well, I could still get a 10K distance in....what I kept reminding myself were miles for Gab.

I wanted to give up after my 5K, I even took a photo of the treadmill. I reminded myself that there is no giving up when fighting  Pediatric Cancer so I needed to keep moving.  These miles were hard for me, I had to work for it. I kept reminding myself they are nothing compared to what a child with Cancer and their family has to go through. I completed the 10K distance for Team Gab. Fundraising for Pediatric Cancer Research Foundation will continue until they run at the PCRF Cinco de Mayo Half Marathon in May. It is not to late to donate, every little bit helps.


  1. Your awesome. Way to go! It's amazing how difficult circumstances will push your harder, especially when you want to stop. Great job.

  2. Great job! Props to you for not giving up even when it was tough.

  3. LOVE! Great job pushing through!!!
