Viva Madrid! September 27, 2011

It is official – Jason and I are signed up for the Maraton de Madrid (which will be the Rock & Roll group’s first international race)!!!  As an added bonus, I was selected to be a mentor for the Team.  Yippee!

The race is on April 22, 2012, and I think we are going to try to turn it into about a two-week vacation.  So, not only do we have to fundraise (more on that in a minute), but we also need to save some personal funds to extend our stay and really make the most of the trip.

Here’s our fundraising website: http://pages.teamintraining.org/ga/madrid12/therhoadeslesstraveled

We have set a $10,000 goal for ourselves – eek!  It’s more than we are required to raise, but that big round number has a really nice ring to it, don’t you think?  We have some good ideas for fundraising events, so definitely check back here AND at the website above to keep up with our shenanigans.

Of course, we still have the Savannah Rock & Roll Half Marathon in about a month, so the hard-core marathon training won’t really start till after that.  It’s just so exciting to be back with TNT, especially for such a large-scale, kick-ass race.  I cannot wait to get back to Spain!

Anyone want to join us?  🙂
