Third Times the Charm!
This is it, third times the charm! While I am still a regular volunteer at Girls on the Run, I have recently reached my board term limits so this is my final triathlon for GOTR. I really want to make this the best one yet. It’s been two years since my last triathlon and my goal is to shave enough time (24 minutes) to finish the entire event in under two hours.
To accomplish that goal I am working with my coach both for an aerodynamic bike fitting, and planned ocean swims this summer.
Overall, I realize my personal humiliation had a significant effect on fundraising efforts the last time, so this year I have some tried and true methods along with newer ones. With your help in 2016, I raised $5,925 which provided full $150 program scholarships for almost 40 girls! To say that I remain grateful for that support is an understatement. This year I’ve decided to raise my goal by 10% to $6,600 and am willing to risk, at least in my mind, a lot of humiliation when I reach those levels. And you thought I couldn’t embarrass myself any further!
So here we go, ..the levels and my commitment are as follows:
$1,000 Pink Shoelaces
$2,000 Pink Socks
$3,000 Pink Eye Black
$3,500 Pink tape on bike aerobars
$4,000 Pink Shirt
$5,000 Pink GOTR symbol on wetsuit
$5,500 Pink Nails
$6,000 Pink Compression arm sleeve
$6,600 Pink Tutu
Please support me in making this event a huge success for Girls on the Run,
