This weekend was a busy one for Team Terisa! We’re all working hard to train for our marathon and raise money for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. If you would like to sponsor me for the marathon you can do so by clicking here, or you can donate to the entire team by clicking here.
Training in Hemet, 4.1 miles, 11.4min/mi
On Saturday morning we ran 4 miles at our weekly training meetup. It was a lot of fun and a great workout. I was able to complete the 4.1 miles, and I managed to complete the run at a pace of 11.40 minutes/mile. When I first started running I could just about run 1.5 miles before stopping, and I was going at around 13 minutes/mile. Progress ftw!
It’s not just me though – I can tell that we’re all making progress as a group, we should be ready to run 13 miles by the end of May.
Applebee’s Pancake Breakfast Fundraiser
On Sunday morning we hosted a fundraiser at Applebees in Hemet, we were able to raise $720 for the team and feed local Hemet..ites? Is that a thing? Hemetians? Anyway they were fed, we enjoyed the work and it was an overall success! I have to say that Applebees makes some bomb pancakes, and our teammate Heather was a natural at serving the all-important butter!
