Races to Support

All of a sudden it seems like my summer is full of races!  I hadn't signed up for much and then BAM! now I'm signed up for everything!  I always knew I was doing the Bradbury Trail Series in July, August and September, and then I got into the Beach to Beacon 10k in August and that was pretty much it.  Then I got an offer to fill in for the bike portion of the Tri for a Cure relay in July and now Boothbay Harbor is having it's very first half marathon in late August as part of Labor Day weekend's Harborfest!  Oh!  And I just won an entry into a 10-miler in June!  See?  BAM!  All of a sudden my race schedule is full.

I'm so glad I get a chance to relay in the Tri for a Cure.  I'm psyched to be doing the bike portion of the relay because the bike is usually my favorite part of the tri!  And and I won't have to do it all wet because I won't be doing the swim part! *bonus*  AND I can go hard, hard, hard because I won't have to save my legs for the run part! *double bonus!*

This race is a fundraising race and my goal is to raise $350 by July 17.  For every $5 that you donate to my fundraising page, I will give you one entry into the raffle for the great prizes that I have to give away.  Here is what I have so far:
~A Tough Chik brand Wonder Chik cycling jersey!  Thank you so much Shannon for donating this!  Size M and is a $55 value!!
~Tough Chik cap
~Nike Sunglasses
~an entry into the Boothbay Harbor Half Marathon--which I will pay for.

More items will be added as we go!

Here is the link to my fundraising page if you would like to donate.  Please help me reach my goal!  Once you donate, please comment to this post how many entries you get and if you want a specific item.

As you can see, one of the prizes is an entry into the Boothbay Harbor Half Marathon on August 31.  It is to coincide with Harborfest and is going to be fabulous!  It's the first half marathon in Boothbay Harbor ever and Master of Ceremonies is Gary Allen!!

As you may remember, Gary is the guy who ran 500 miles in 10 days this past January to raise money for the Wounded Warrior Project.  He is also the founder and director of the Great Cranberry Island Ultra so you are definitely going to want to come to this race and hear him speak.  He might even be the one to give you your finishers medal!

Go HERE to sign up!  Hurry!  The fees to register will go up as we get closer to race day!

Here are some of the other things that are going on that weekend:
~Chili/Chowder Challenge
~Golf tournament
~Harbor Crawl
~Art on the Waterfront
~Fashion Show
~Live Music
~Treasure Hunt

In short, I now have a very busy race schedule for this summer and I would love for you all to join me at the Harborfest Half Marathon and please help me to reach my fundraising goal!  Thank you, thank you!
