F.A.S.T.E.R. @ Fifty
This November, shortly after the big 5-0, I will be participating in my fourth, and possibly final, half marathon as a member of TEAM ASPCA. Instead of travelling to California, I will be racing in Florida at the 2017 Disney Wine & Dine Half Marathon Weekend, which will be held November 4th and 5th. So any local cheerleaders would be welcomed and greatly appreciated!!!

Over the past three years, I have been fortunate, through friends and family, to raise approximately $8600. My primary 2017 goal is to raise a minimum of $1775 which will take me over the $10k mark, my stretch goal would be to exceed my first year’s total of $3100.
I’ve also been fortunate to run 39.3 miles collectively for the past three years, and running this year will have me running over 52 miles for the animals. My secondary 2017 goal is to beat last year’s 2:46 time, but my stretch goal would be to beat my 2014 time of 2:13:25.
I can control goal #2, but I need your help for goal #1.
