A few days ago I also received my first check from my Flower Power Fundraising Spring fundraiser. In just a couple of weeks I received $45 from orders friends placed. That's pretty nifty. I'm going to do their Summer/Fall program, too, I think. That should be a bit more lucrative, since I can get an online "event" up earlier and run it through the end of the early Fall planting season. I'm also considering trying a fun pasta-themed fundraising program.

This week may end up being north of 100 miles, too. On Sunday we had a JDRF team ride that covered 47 miles for those of us participating in both the routes (last year my hubby--a coach--came up with the idea of doing 2 ride distances, that way we'd end up with essentially 3 different options...short, longer, or both, since the distances are not scheduled simultaneously. It also gives people the option to work the rides around earlier or later obligations). Tonight I'm planning to get in on my first Tues. night ladies' night ride of the season. I really enjoyed those last year. The planned route is about 30 miles, so that already puts me at 77 for the week. Might as well bang out another 23 later in the week for an even 100.
Last week was a very light running week. The plan (from Gale Bernhardt's Training Plans for Multisport Athletes book--I'm doing the advanced sprint duathlon plan) I'm working off of only had 2 3 milers. I threw a 4 miler in there, too. 6 miles in a week is lighter than I felt necessary, especially since this week's plan only has me doing 14 miles.
