Chicago Marathon Fundraising Update: Team RMHC

Happy Hump Day!!

What day is it???

What day is it???

We are THREE months away from 26.2 in Chicago!!! This training cycle has gone by so fast, faster than the previous three I’ve done. I’m already in week 5!

If you remember a couple of months back when I made the decision to run Chicago for charity, there were a few things that worried me.

Well, one thing.

Would I be able to raise enough money?

I seriously underestimated my running family’s ability to come through when I need them. I’M OVER HALFWAY!!!!

It was over a year ago when I started this blog, not sure of what my purpose was or if anyone would even read it. But people do read it (thank you!) and I’ve become pretty good friends with some (you know who you are!).

Thank you so much ❤ :

Kimberly @BlackDogRunsDisney
Colby @It’sAMarathonANDASprint
Charissa@CharissaRunning
Sara @LifeBetweenTheMiles
Hailey @StridingStrong
Mar @MarOnTheRun
Amber @PBandPRs

With the exception of Hailey (she lives in Arizona), I haven’t met any of these wonderful people! But even though we’ve never spoke face to face, the internet bond is strong let me tell you. (Check out their pages when you get a chance!)

My online running family and my “real life” running family have combined to make up the majority of what I’ve raised so far! I’m seriously overwhelmed with the love and support of the running community. Completely overwhelmed. You guys are awesome.

Between your donations, your support on this blog, your encouragement on social media, this has been the most fun I’ve had preparing for a marathon–and I’m barely in week 5!! 😀

Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!! ❤ , helly

  1. I’m so happy to help, Helly!!! And yay to your success raising money thus far 🙂 I have met a few fellow bloggers now (I feel like I’m in the optimal location for that lol), but I still haven’t met you and of course I’d love for that to happen one day!! ❤

  2. I’m so glad your fundraising is going so well!!! I think this race is going to be an incredible experience for you, and I’m so excited for you! I’ve only ever met you from blogging, we need to recruit everyone for the Phoenix Marathon hehe;)
