Three Things Thursday...........

1) This has been a strange week in terms of running and blogging. I just haven't been motivated to do either. All I want to do is eat and sleep, no I am not pregnant! I attribute the change in seasons, this is when my S.A.D.(Seasonal Affective Disorder) kicks in............

2) I start back on the Team in training Informational meetings next week. Bring on the new meat!

3) Sunday I'll be waking up at the butt-crack of dawn to volunteer again but for a worthy cause. I'll be parking vehicles in Hell, literally............Here's what will be happening in our neck of the woods:

    If you have been a runner in Michigan for the last several years then you undoubtedly know or have seen Dolores and Harrison Hensley. They put on the Run Thru Hell Race for many years which was a quality event that thousand of runners competed in. They would also travel to races every weekend and even go to mid week races. Dolores would help with registration and work the finish chute and Harrison would take with him entry forms from hundreds of races so runners could look through them and take the forms home. They were very active and important people in the Michigan running community. This all came to end in November of 2008 when Dolores suffered a stroke. Now these once active and vibrant people are confined to their house. They miss seeing all the runners every weekend and we miss
    seeing their smiles and all the help they brought to the race.

    This race is for them. This is a one time race that will not be held again. The
    entire entry fee will go to the purchase of a wheelchair assessable minivan
    so Dolores and Harrison can once again go to the races.

What a cool cause! Just keep repeating to yourself as you wake up real early and make your way to Hell!

It sounds like your Sunday morning will be blessed...maybe not with great weather if the winds keep up but with good karma from helping at the race.
