Sat. May 5, March of Dimes March for Babies

By: seflagamma , 9:00 PM GMT on May 03, 2012

Actually we have another donation so now we are at $1,220.00!!! {{{{Thank You}}}}

May 5, 2012: We did it. We ran the 3 miles and raised $1,020.00 !!!! So for a 4th year in a row we exceeded our goal of $1,000. Thank you all for your support! Most of this amount of our donations came from WU Friends.

I have pictures as soon as I can get them loaded here.. already tried earlier....will try again.

Let me see if I can copy and paste a picture from FB.

Hubby took this one of me "before" the 3 mile run.

We ask someone to take a picture of us "after" the 3 mile run.. like we do every year but for some reason
both photos he took are blury ..

That purple circle spot under my boobs is actually a sticker we got as we crossed finish line that says
"I did it!" I stuck it there not realizing how it would look in a picture! I also look pregnant but I'm not! LOL

May 3, 2012: This Saturday is the big event, the annual March of Dimes, March for babies. This event is held in almost every state and in some states a lot of counties.
Because of so many very generous friends and family...many of you right here from WU...
we have once again topped our goal... thank you so much.
I still have not included the cash/check donations which will take us over the $1,000 goal!
I found pictures from previous years and added them to the bottom.

Hubby and I take off work on this Saturday to participate in this fund raiser for a very good organization.
We both "run" the 5K (3.1 miles) instead of walking it..
At least it is no longer a 10K (6.2 miles) that was very hard for me and I doubt
I will ever be able to do that many miles again.

I have been a March of Dimes Mother since Greg was born premature back in 1975.
3 of our 5 grandchildren were March of Dimes Babies and the one coming this summer could also
need this organization but we hope not. So once again, I will walk/run for our Babies.


Here are my "weather" maps
Sunrise, Florida:


I found out, these maps are measuring fire hazard and soil moisture, not necessary drought according to rainfall.

I know I have pictures of each of these events the past 4 yrs.. will try to find them for this header.

We Kicked Butt! (seflagamma)
March of Dimes March for Babies. Ellen and I with Rylee in the stroller did great! We did the 6 miles in 1 hr 20 mins. the first 5 miles we averaged 14 min miles and we ran the final 6th mile back into park under the finish line...and later we walked another 2 miles back to our parking lot instead of taking the bus. We got a workout today.

Sat. April 25, 2009: March of Dimes, March for Babies. "I did it!" is what the sticker said when I cross the 6 mile finish line. I actually ran 3 miles and walked 3 miles during the 6 mile course. All for a good cause, our babies.

....I have a lot of folks to acknowledge who kept my prev blog going while I was banned from my own blog.

At least now I can get in via Internet Explorer but still cannot get in via Google Chrome.

be back later.

Sandi, Jeff, Scott, Shores, Rob, Skye, Pros, GG, Aubie, BC, NEw and any others that left notes on my prev blog.. be sure I read them all... I could "read" my blog if I was not "logged in" under my own handle!

Ever since that little very expensive virus a few years ago.. I have ensured my protection
is running 24/7 and Webroot is suppose to be really good. And while I don't need to do it.. I now run a manual scan once a week...

And I am getting so much better at logging off and out of some of my "places" I go.. and shutting down home computer ever so often..

This is a WU problem with Google Chrome and my handle..

So Thank you all for keeping up my blog and Sandi for letting me use hers for communication!

Funny I could get in your blogs but not my own..

Also White Rabbits to you all 3 times.. Happy Month of May.. and Happy BD to Skye who's BD was Yesterday..

and I am still not caught up!!!

It finally stopped raining and we are seeing the sunshine today.. have a 20% chance of rain tomorrow but that is normal ...

And that rain put our area in a "happy place" for this time of year.. at least we are no longer "down" in rainfall...
We received 7.25" in 3 days.. that is a lot of rain.. most of it has now run off into drainage canals and low berms.. at least no longer in streets or yards.

Busy at work today and tomorrow since I am off Friday..

will try to get back soon...
