Fruit Loops and coffee

Sunday morning breakfast of champions.
I can't remember when I have just made coffee, poured myself some cereal (my childhood favorite), read the paper and just watched priceless reruns like 'Mad About You' in my pajamas.
It's a partly cloudy day, the wind is blowing, and the dog and cat are outside, sunning on the deck.
It's hard to decide which of us is having the better time today.

This is the week...

To decide on a running program.
To get my knees 'tweaked' by the doctor.
To sign up for the marathon in November.

Speaking of heroes

MotownRunnerGirl, my inspiration, is doing The Nation's Triathlon in September. It's her first tri. Go to her blog and click the link that says Click here to Save Lives. Or go here.
She'll be cycling, swimming and running, raising money for blood cancer research for Team in Training. Her honored hero is her cousin Kenito's wife, Daniela. You can read Daniela's story here.

Motown talked me into trying out running back in 2006. I never thought I could do it, run a half, much less a full marathon, but she kept telling me I could, so I guess I did.
So, readers of Circle30, check out her blog and her link. It's a good cause and your donations are tax deductible.

All of us, at one time or another, have been touched by cancer of all forms. Every little bit helps out. Hopefully one day every Team in Training participant will just be running for the fun of it, instead of trying to raise money to find cures for blood cancers.
Until then, as we say, "Saving Lives One Mile At A Time."
Good luck, Motown.
