This is just a fun little glimpse into my crazy head!! So...when I run...I randomly get lost in thought. So....you want to know just what it is I think about as I run?? Well a little bit of everything...and what I think about today....is completely different than what I thought about yesterday and what I will think about tomorrow. Normally something sparks my thought process while I'm running...and I just take it from there. Remember...in the beginning I did warn you that my head is crazy! I also tend to think a lot about what I want to look like, what I want to wear (yes..my crazy head designs clothes during my run as well) and just why I am putting my body through this!!
So on Tuesday when I was running....I have planned a whole 5K run....(once again...remember I warned you that I was crazy)....I was sooo sooo soo excited when I was done and went to tell Troy....and well....he didn't care. Just so ya'll all don't think that Troy is a jerk....he offered to pick up the kids & fix dinner so I could run....well during all of that time...Brynnleigh was SCREAMING...she just didn't care that Mommy was running, Daddy was fixing dinner, and Owen was in his train coma building train tracks. I think Troy was just a tad bit on edge when bubbly little running Amy picks up Brynnleigh (who immediately stops screaming...sorry Daddy...sometimes a girl just needs her Momma) and gasps "I've got this whole 5K thing I want to do totally planned out"!
So....since Troy wouldn't hear me out.....I'm throwing this out on the blogosphere!! I hope I can seriously do all this and organize it....but it's a lot of work...here is my plan:
AMY's 5K - to be named later
WHERE - Hampton Park - Otterdale Rd.
WHEN - Early fall, or spring (I'll explain why this time later)
CAUSE - School of Autism, Richmond (need to get school name, check to see if they are interested, etc)
Reason forCause - Neighbor's son (Conner) goes to this school...and for some reason O is infatuated w/Conner...and I think you should always pick something close to home...even if you take that literally.
1. Ultimate Backyard (playground company) - why you ask? because Conner loves to swing & be outside (hence the fall/spring time frame) - contact - guy we just bought swingset from
2. YMCA - they will be builing a new one in neighborhood - great way to get community involved (need to make sure YMCA doesn't have strict regulations on who they are allowed to "sponsor", ie, specific charities) - contact - O's tball coach
3.L&F Beran Team - this is probably more help to me, than a sponsor...but back in the day I remember Kristin and I saying that we would always keep the Golf Samaratins Golf tournament going...well 5 years later, it's stopped. I think this would be a good way for us to keep the thought going, and Kristin has a lot of contacts that could help...need to make sure they approve of cause...
I've also thought about making sure this is safe w/road closures/directing traffic...I have 2 friends (well....contacts I guess) who are in the police force to see if they could help to see what we need to do.
Soooo...what am I waiting for you ask?? I have no idea...I need to start looking up how to start a 5k organized race...and I need to start asking my potential helpers/sponsors/causes to see if they are interested....the only problem....I don't want to start asking until I know 100% that I can do this. The last thing I want to do is get someone else's hopes up, and then it doesn't happen.
So...any help/advice/shake me so I realize just how crazy I am....well I'll take it.
Don't worry....I'm not running by myself again for another week....so I should be back to blogs about the kids soon!
