We have 12 weeks until the marathon! Rawbroccoli, StarPilgrim, and I have been working on several things the past few days, in light of it suddenly feeling like this race is just around the corner. (Although, it's very hard to imagine frigid October, running by the seaside... especially when it's still humid summer here in the mountains!).
Besides still dragging ourselves to the gym or hitting the road for long runs, we've been working on this blog, our Facebook page, and our fundraising page. Here's the run-down (yes, pun intended):
What's new here on the blog:
the fundraising widgit! What's a widgit?! Fancy name for 'button you can click on'. This doo-dad is located over in the upper-right corner of the blog. Not only does it show you our current progress, but you can click on it to make your own contribution right now! Wow, technology.
What's new on Facebook:
Our running page! If you're a Facebook user and we haven't had the chance to 'invite' you to join this group, just go to Facebook.com and log in. Then search for "running for gould farm". Join up, leave comments, see who else is supporting this worthy cause!
What's new on the fundraising page:
Rawbroccoli has created a fundraising page through the organization FirstGiving. This page ensures (and here is the important word) that you can make a SECURE online donation. We are using this organization because others like us have had great success with their format. On this page, you can read more about Gould Farm and also monitor our progress.
That's all for now! The ball is really starting to roll now, so please come back often!
