OT - the decision to run

kylewilliam's picture

I know it's a bit off topic, but I wanted to share with you - last night, I signed up with the National AID Marathon Training Program to begin training to run in the Los Angeles Marathon this coming March. I have never ran before (not like this, anyway) but I have wanted to do it for years.

well, this is the year.

I am hunting for donations - and hope to get most of my support from my knitting family. A few really generous friends have already donated, and I wanted to call on my knitting and crochet brothers to see if any of you could spare a few dollars to help support me and to help raise money for AIDS research!

it's all tax deductible, so it's a great opportunity to give.

I'll be blogging about the process on my personal blog, www.kylewilliam.com/blog.html and through the training program's website on a personal page

Here's the link if you'd like to check it out and maybe give a few dollars -

THANK YOU for donating, and also, if you can, take my link and share it with your friends and family - the only way I'll ever reach my goal of $3000.00 is with your help.

Happy Friday!!

Kyle

I'm overwhelmed with the level of support - and from a small handful of people! - I'll do my best to give updates - and appreciate every dollar that's donated.

I am off this weekend to prepare some... trying to figure out what kind of running shoes to buy! :)
