3 Things Thursday

1.  What do a Marathon and a Wedding have in common??  
A whole lot more than you think...  
  • Training plan to get in the best shape of your life!
  • Meticulous planning of "the outfit" for the big day
  • Fresh grooming to look good & feel fresh... Haircut, manicure, pedicure... check!
  • Planning out every detail of the day... and providing family with an itinerary. OCD?!
  • Everyone asking you if you're nervous or excited... which of course, I am both!
  ... and in the end, you never know just how it's going to play out!

2.  I got in!!  The Radisson is the host hotel for the Quad Cities Marathon this weekend, located right by the start/finish line.  It's been booked up since I registered back in May.  There's not any other hotels in walking distance, so we were stuck across the state line in Iowa.  I've been calling every day/night this week, trying to snag a cancellation at just the right time.  This morning, luck was on my side!!  Woo-Hoo!  We got a room in the Radisson, which is also hosting the expo.  Sweet!!

3.  Determined for DetermiNation.  I hate cancer... who doesn't, right?!   I'm excited to announce that I just joined the DetermiNation team for the Indianapolis Monumental Half-Marathon on November 5 to help fight with the American Cancer Society. 

So.... please consider ordering one of my "will run for cupcakes" technical shirts.  They are super cute, great quality and a terrific deal (only $15 + $5 shipping).  Proceeds from each shirt sale will be donated to the American Cancer Society-DetermiNation team.  Click HERE for detailed shirt information or just email me at to place your shirt order.

Or you can donate directly to my DetermiNation team  HERE.  Thank you for your support!!  I've got 6 weeks to raise $550 for the fight against cancer.


  1. Thank you! I didn't even know before ordering that shirt that the proceeds were going anywhere. My dad was diagnosed with cancer last year. This means a lot!!! :)

  2. You crack me up!!! Marathons and Weddings are so alike!!! Kudos to you for snagging a room!

  3. guess they do have a lot in common! Ha!

    WOOHOO for getting into the race and raising awareness and money for such a horrible disease.


I appreciate your feedback and comments!
