Introducing TEAM 5318008: Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation CIBC Run for the Cure
Let’s hear it for
the newest members of the Fleet-A-Pita franchise TEAM 5318008 of the 2012 Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation CIBC Run for the Cure in Toronto!
That introduction isn’t going to make much sense to you if you’re not a Simpsons fan… and if you are, then you’ll understand why I could never use another way to introduce my running team (or any team ever, for that matter.)
There’s us, team 5818008 (minus Sarah, who was ill that night)– aka a select group of my best / most fun / most runnerly girlfrands!
Casie, Courtney, Harmony and Sarah (alphabetical order, of course) will be joining me on September 30 for my first ever charity run — you can read more about why I’m running and what I’ve been doing to prepare here.
If you still haven’t figured our name out, plunk it into a calculator and flip it upside down Grade 7 styles.
GET IT? Hehehe…
As much as I’d like to, I can’t take full credit for the wicked team name.
I actually put the name to a vote after a wee brainstorming session with the girls and this was the moniker chosen by thee the people — overwhelmingly so!
Nice to know that my digital friends are every bit as mature as I am, bwahaha
We’ll be getting shirts with our team names on them so that when we do handstands, people will get it. I’d better start practicing my handstand now… something new to add to my training regime.
Speaking of, training has been going well! I’ve been a bit lax on the outdoor running, but I’m killing it on the treadmill.
That doesn’t count, does it? #shamed
DAT BLOG, mayne. Dog shaming is the new PWWTKT. Book deal imminent.
But I digress.
As for fundraising, I’m up to $350.00 thanks to a few very generous donations from Internet friends. That’s just $650 short of my $1000 team goal (and $50 over my personal goal!)
That said, we haven’t even had our major fundraising event yet, which, as we decided on Friday will be…
THAT’S RIGHT! Keep those rags and machines hummin’.
More details on team 5318008s big bad carwash to come — but trust, there will be cars. And there will be washing.
There may even be some under-dressed cuties washing rides
