Garage Sale Success!! Pictures!! And other Events!! <--- I sound like Danny from Tri-Sports :-)

We hosted our first garage sale of the year last weekend and it was a huge success!! We brought in over $300 and had some awesome help, Anna was there 10 minutes and was bargaining like a champ! Thanks to Kenny, Shea, and Anna for donating, and to Chris and Phil for helping clean up. Sorry Chris you always seem to secretly get roped into helping. :-)

Our next garage sale will be on June 5th, and the goal is to still beat are largest one from last year where we made $450!!! So if anyone has any "treasures" they would like to get rid of, send them this way!! You can write them off of your taxes as a donation (which is pretty awesome!) :-)

Here are some pictures from this past weekend...

As for walking, we are on mile 9 this week... with 13 weeks left of training... it has been fun so far...another month and the temp will be in the high 80's and we will be pushing 13 or 14 miles a day... then those will be the tough days :-) Luckily this year, we will be training in hotter weather than actually doing the walk and there are less hills in Michigan than where we are training. For that reason, I feel no need to conquer the large hills in the neighborhood after 9 miles if I am not going to have to do them in the 3day.

To avoid this, I bring Phil along...
In other news, for those of you who asked what fundraisers we are doing besides garage sales, we will be having a cook-off in June! I am very excited about this, three of the guys have volunteered to compete against each other in making full meals and we will get to choose which one is the best, (sort of like Iron Chef)...

Details are to follow, if you are interested in coming to this, please let me know and I will make sure I include you in the invite!!
