Save the Rhinos!

I’m so amazed by the outpouring of support for the city of Boston and the Boston Marathon Runners. Tribute runs have been popping up all over the US, the Red Cross has been overflowing with blood donations, and numerous other donations for victims and their families. Good people outnumber the bad, and we always will!

A tribute run in the area for anyone interested, and also in the area 🙂

In a few short weeks, I will be running in the San Diego Zoo Safari Park Half Marathon with several friends. I’m getting so excited! One of my good friends ran it last year and had a blast, so I’ve been looking forward to it since she told me about it.

Here is the link to the race website, Safari Park Half Marathon

The race raises money for “rhino conservation in the wild by supporting anti-poaching laws, managing rhino translocations, reintroductions and improving security” as well as providing care to the rhinos at the San Diego Zoo Safari Park. The race website has links so some really cute rhino videos (there’s a baby rhino named Charlee – adorbs).

If you’re interested in donating to the cause, you can do so on the race website. OR sign up for the race too!

Also found on the website – love it:

Workouts this week so far:
Sunday – 5 miles on the treadmill
Monday – cross-train – 25 minutes bike, 25 minutes elliptical, abs, arms
Tuesday – 4.09 miles (treadmill) in honor of Boston – marathon time when the bombs went off
Wednesday – biked to work (6 miles total). I have felt a little under the weather the last couple days, so I decided not to run too
Thursday (today) – still not feeling that great, but ran 4.13 miles outside because I couldn’t resist how nice it is outside 🙂

In other news, I added a “Races Page” to document races and times in the last couple years – and I’ll keep adding to it. Some photos too.

Happy It’s Almost Friday!!
