Train for Charity

Almost all races you do have some cause they are supporting, whether you know about it or not.  But races can be expensive and the amount of money that actually goes to the charity is usually not anywhere close to the registration fee.  (Not that I don’t love racing, I am all about races but they do add up).

Im so super excited about an ap I learned about today on Kelly and Michael.  Its called Charity Miles.  With this ap, you turn it on while you run/walk/bike and for every mile you go, a certain amount of money (between 10 and 25 cents) per mile is donated to whatever charity you choose.  There are soooo many to pick from too and the beautiful thing is you can do a different one for every workout if you so choose.

I immediately downloaded the ap and it is sooo easy to use.  You just choose your charity and hit start when you begin.  I chose Partnership for a Healtheir America which supports ending childhood obesity.  I am so bummed I didn’t know about this when I was in the heat of marathon training pulling 50+ miles a week.    Talk about even more motivation to get your butt on the road.

In other news, Scarlett got her spay today.  She is pretty lethargic but seems to be doing well, poor girl.
