First, a huge and heartfelt thanks to everyone who donated to my Team in Training fundraising to benefit the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. You all rock! With your help, I reached my $2500 goal with plenty of time to spare before my marathon in October. Of course, additional donations will not be refused and will go to a most worthy cause.
I am happy to announce that my friend Patricia, author of the wonderful Brownies for Dinner, is the winner of the Sony camera fundraising raffle. I’m also happy to announce that my friend Cora (Cora Cooks and says she doesn’t bake, but she really does) has won the BlogHer Food ticket that I am unable to use because I will be out giving my feet a 22-mile trial on conference day.
Last weekend I did my longest training walk so far, 16 miles. If my daughter M were here, she would say “Do you want a cookie?” Yes, I do, thank you very much. Chocolate chip will be fine.
Congratulations to all three of you. Patricia and Cora, winners of the contests, and to you Susan, for your effort and your endurance. Kudos to you!
I am so impressed by your walking, and congratulations on reaching your goal! I am sending Korova cookies to you!
The secret is out! That’s how you stay so healthy with all that bread to eat!!
Baking Soda says
Wow Susan, congratulations and kudos for your efforts, great going!
Congrats, Patricia and Cora, and good job Susan!
Congratulations to the three winners! 🙂
Susan, I am curious to find out how long it took you to walk the 16 – did you jog too, or walked full time? By now I imagine you have a strategy more or less in place for the big day? If you don’t mind sharing details, I would love to read them
Great job on reaching that goal!
Congratulations Susan. 🙂
I’ve just discovered your site, but I’ve been cribbing recipes from you like crazy all week, and then I come across this….
I just want to thank you. I’m a two-time lymphoma survivor, and the work that LLS does with the money raised by runners and walkers *truly* changes lives.
I was actually registered to walk Nike Womens’ Marathon with some other young survivors, but it isn’t going to happen for me this year. I’ll be thinking of you on race day!
