Yesterday morning I found out about a great FREE contest sponsored by Chase that could really help Operation Jack, and I knew that I had no doubt I had to blog about it immediately. Like today! It’s extremely simple. If you have Facebook, become a fan of Chase Community Giving, vote for Operation Jack, then tell everybody you know! 100 charities will win $25,000. It’s a 30-second process, and I get nothing out of this, but it could breathe HUGE life into Operation Jack!
Just click here and vote for us! PLEASE! Oh, and spread the word. If it’s too confusing to send them the link to the page on Facebook, just send them here. As you noticed, I have that announcement page up now, and everybody will see it once per visit for the next two weeks until the contest is over.
Post it on your wall, tweet it, tell your friends to tell their friends … it’s really easy, and I’m begging! Begging! Begging! I’ll think of something I’ll do if we pull this off. But get to it! We can do this!
I finally snapped out of my funk and went for a run yesterday. I took it hard and pounded my legs for 10.1 miles. Not really a long run for me, but I have a marathon next weekend I want to well at, so I have to keep the miles down. I took a stumble and cut up my knee, but that wasn’t even my worse gaffe of the day. On my way to lunch, I stepped off a step and missed in and totally rolled my ankle. Yes, the ankle I sprained so badly this summer I had to take five weeks off of running.
I panicked, because this isn’t what I need right now, but it didn’t swell and it didn’t feel anywhere near as bad as it did last time. I was really surprised it wasn’t worse, because I landed sideways on my foot after about a two foot drop. Thank God!
This morning, I went out for nine miles, nothing to it. I’m feeling good. I’m a touch sluggish from my lack of running last week, but nothing major. I kind of like tapering. I should just run a race every weekend.
Ice Cream Update
I had some peanut butter fudge swirl ice cream last night. If you go to Ralphs to get your groceries, it’s their Private Selection generic label and it’s DELICIOUS. It’s probably my favorite right now.
Anyways, I’ve very quietly worked my latest streak up to 42 days, my second-longest ever. If my math is correct, I believe this makes it 158 out of the past 161 days that I’ve had ice cream. I’m 67 days shy of tying my record, 68 from breaking it.
That’s All For Now, Folks!
I need to keep these blogs short so that I don’t take all night writing them and it doesn’t take you all morning to read them! Have a great Wednesday everybody. I’ll see you tomorrow. Can’t wait to tell you about the Orange Strikers! Big games this weekend!
