I’m am so thrilled to announce that I have reached my fundraising goal of $1000 for the Vermont Respite House Jiggety Jog 5k!

I have been absolutely overwhelmed by the donations pouring in from friends, family, coworkers and bloggers.  The Respite House is a truly special place, and this money is well-deserved.

Now that I’ve reached my fundraising goal, I feel like I can really relax and enjoy this race.  Unfortunately, the weather for Saturday isn’t looking so great right now–70s and rainy.  Booo.  I’m still excited, though.  My parents will be coming and this is the first time they’ve ever seen me race.  It’s also my birthday weekend (!!) so my energy is bound to be really positive.

This is turning out to be a really awesome week here on Darlin’ Rae!

Are you racing this weekend?  

Do your parents/family ever come watch you race?

    This weekend I am not racing, but next weekend I am. And actually I think my brother is going to come watch me run!

    Congrats on reaching your fundraising goal!! 🙂

    My parents have come to a few of my races. It’s great having the support, and knowing they’re in the crowd is motivation to run, instead of walking like I tend to want to do!

    Woo! Great job! You are killing it right now! My mom comes to my big races: she was there, and participated in some of, my first half marathons, and she was there for my marathon. Alex has only seen me race once–the day we moved to Chicago!
