500 on the 500th!

So, this is it. My 500th blog post. Don't believe me? Go back and count them. I promise you'll get 500.
Perhaps you were expecting something big for this post. Maybe you were thinking I was going to compile a list of "500 things...." I may have a few free minutes a day, I don't have THAT kind of time.
In my opinion though, this is much more exciting than anything else I could have come up with for the 500th post!
If you keep up with the blog, you not only know that I've been training for the half marathon (6 more days, people!), but you also probably know that during the entire training period, I've been raising money for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. Well, I'm thrilled to say that I've collected OVER $500! It makes me so happy to know that in less than a week, I will not only be achieving a major goal of mine, but also helping out (a little!) with the many people around our country who have Leukemia or Lymphoma.
So....cheers to my 500th blog post AND for the $500+ that was raised! Thanks to all of you who contributed!
(I guess now I need to start thinking about what I'll do for the 1,000th post...)
