A story for you.
When I was in Jamaica a little over a year ago, we were in the lobby of the hotel and DJ starts talking to a guy who happened to be a local cab/bus driver. They chatted about a bunch of things and then DJ called me over to introduce me. The man put out his hand to shake and introduced himself as Wellington. I took his hand, shook it, and said “Nice to meet you, I’m Jessington”. Seriously.
In all fairness it was early in the morning and I hadn’t had any coffee or food, but still. I have no clue where that came from. Let’s just say to this day, several people call me Jessington. 🙂
Things here have been busy and my brain is feeling a bit mushy. I can’t remember if I recapped class on Saturday. I seem to think that I didn’t.
This is the ride I used.
For class last night, I used this ride.
The class has picked up in size a bit, which is nice. It’s an odd group, but it will get there with some consistency. I got a nice sweat going, which was just what I wanted.
When I was at the gym yesterday I got the go ahead for a 3 hour fundraising ride in February. I had been trying to organize this for months and due to staffing changes it kept getting pushed aside. I am so so so happy that it’s finally a go!
What really makes me happy is that the charity is an organization called Running for Rescues. This is a local organization that typically raises money when people run races and volunteer to fund raise for them. Here’s a little description.
Running for Rescues is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to saving the lives of shelter animals around the country. We will reach out to runners and non-runners alike, to fundraise for us in any race they choose.
I love animals so I had wanted to host an event like this. I know many rescue groups and shelters but really didn’t want to limit the event to just one breed/species etc. By working with Running for Rescues we can help any animal and various organizations.
If you’re in the CT area and interested in learning more, let me know. 🙂
Time for Jessington to get to work!
