You Are NOT Allowed to Laugh!

That's me, stretching after a 5 mile training walk in Central Park this morning, in what I refer to as my "Karate Kid" pose. I try to do this one near some sort of bench, fence or other steady object, as I have a tendency to start doing my Leaning Tower of Pisa impersonation, and one of these days, I'm gonna land right smack on my ass!

I'm wearing my new "Crawl, Carol, CRAWL!!!" t-shirt. If you would like a supporter version of the shirt, or other items, you can find them in the "Crawl, Carol, CRAWL!!!" store:

Doing really well with both the training and fund raising so far. I even won a pair of socks!!!

Today's training consisted of:
  • 1 - 4-mile loop up to around 104th Street and back to 72nd
  • 1 - 1 mile lower loop of the park, down to 59th Street and back
In addition to the training walk, I walked up to 72nd Street and back to/from the subway station, making a total of 7.54 miles by the time I got on the 7 train at Queensboro Plaza. By noon, I was up to 8 miles.

On the fund raising front, I came home to find two envelopes waiting for me - one with a check for $50 and one with a check for $100! Tonight, I'll be providing music during my local VFW Post's "Night at the Races" and will have my donation jar ready, along with some handouts and business cards to place on the tables before the event starts. I'm hoping that it's well-attended, and that I bring home at least $50.

Stay tuned...
