MyFiveFingers.com Year-Long Giveaway

As most of you know by now, I have 3 pairs of VFF's and love them all!  Or as my sister likes to say;
"You wear gloves on your feet".  
My latest pair, Komodo Sports are my favorite so far.

Well, MyFiveFingers.com has a year-long giveaway going on right now!  Check it out:  http://www.myfivefingers.com/win-fivefingers/

They have multiple ways to enter and your entry last all year!  Hey, you can give them to me if you don't want them ;)

Race update

So I have a race schedule, somewhat, setup.  I'll be looking at some other 5k's to work into the schedule as the spring time draws near and we get into summer.  Really going to try and do the 10k at the Arts Festival but I'm still on the fence at this point.

First race coming up:  
Special Olympics Beaver Stadium 5k Run
Sunday, April 17th 2011
I'm trying to raise $310 for the Special Olympics.  Figured it's a 5k, I don't know enough people to raise $5k ;), but I should be able to raise 3.1.  $3.10 was a little too low, $31 didn't seem right either, so $310.  I'm almost halfway there.  If you'd like to help out you can click here to get to my page.  Thank you for your support.

General Update

So I think the blog situation is finally worked itself out.  I have what I had in mind setup and now I'm working on images for the headers on each.  I did work with one more design that I do like and may end up switching to at some point, but it is what it is for now.

I'm also working on gathering my ideas for posts as well as some weekly posts (Markx Monday, Tuesdays Tip/Training Tuesday, Wacky Wednesday, Thirsty Thursday and Fun Friday, etc.).  I've had those in mind along with some topics and how to organize things (yeah, I'm a neat freak, I know it shouldn't take this long), so I think I'm about ready to jump in!

I haven't been posting much lately because I'm still working out what I'd like to see on here.  I've been looking through various templates and other blogs and trying to figure out what would work best for me and anyone that would visit.

Some of the things I've been thinking about:
  • Sharing links for posts Done
  • Footer links, are they needed?  Do I have enough to warrant the need for them? Done
  • Layout of information
  • Extras for the sidebar, what? why? etc.? Done
So this has been a longer process than I had intended and somewhat of a learning curve is needed for some things.

I appreciate anyone and everyone that stops by to look this over and hope that things will be in place and I'll be sharing what little information I may provide soon.
