if it hadn't been so hot and muggy i would've taken advantage of the extra hour for a long run, but gah 85* i mean really. i'm so not ready for this april! i did get out for an hour-long run in the heat, nothing fancy.

a fellow runner and blogger olivia of "blissful runner" is running the maryland half marathon in may to promote and raise money for the university of maryland marlene and stewart greenebaum cancer center (long name, good cause). olivia's husband lost his mother to cancer a few years ago which has inspired her to make a difference.
go stop by olivia's page and wish her luck. many people complain about these "tough economic times" but i'm willing to bet battling cancer is tougher. i know we all have change we can spare - toss $1 (you don't need that side of fries anyway), $5 (what's one trip to starbucks?), $10 (who needs that gallon of gas?) -- whatever you can give for the cause.
remember: the more you give... the more you can write off next year on your taxes ;-)
seriously - my mood may be light and fun, but ultimately it is a good cause and the blogging community is always great at pulling together support for each other. so let's do this people!
