Weekly fundraiser update, 7/22.

Wow, what a weekend! Made a spontaneous trip to St. Louis to catch a Cubs game (blowout loss, go figure). Even more spontaneously, decided to run a 5K in St. Louis this morning — “I Love Forest Park” was the name of it. I’d never seen or heard of Forest Park, but I really do love it now. What a beautiful venue!

Very excited with the way I ran in Saturday’s 10-mile race at Fort Riley army base, and another PR in today’s 5K (check PR tab at top for more).

Several running pics to see from this week — check on Facebook or Instagram for those.

Also, fundraiser is up to $745 raised so far ($55 this week). Check tab at the top for more on that, too.

Today’s highlight: I ran in three different states in one day. So cool. After this morning’s 5K in St. Louis, MO, I went back to my hotel across the Illinois border in Caseyville, IL — ran just over a mile for the sole purpose of saying I’d run in a state I hadn’t run in before. Then, upon arriving home, I realized that running 0.5 mile would not only give me 3 states in 1 day, but it would even off my donation amount with my Sunday miles. So, yeah. Fun weekend!

Here are the pics from today…
