After a long winter of eating, travelling, some sleep and more eating I have decided to start a serious running schedule again, which means, a race. For me, having a goal race is the best way to get back into running shape and this year I have decided to run the Beat The Bridge race in Seattle. Beat The Bridge is an 8K race that also serves as a  fundraiser for the Juvenille Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF). The event actually consists of an 8K run, 4 mile Family Walk, One Mile fun run and a Diaper Derby (I may have to see this). The fun parts of this race are a challenge to beat the University Bridge before it is raised and then somehow complete an 8K and cross the finish line in Husky Stadium. The bridge is at the 2.0 mile mark of the race for those of you who follow the Imperial System.

Part of the training that I would like to complete is financial training. I am looking to raise funds for Juvenile Diabetes and would appreciate if you readers could make a donation to the cause.
