Three Things Thursday: Do you have plans Saturday?

1. Straight Talk Wireless is encouraging consumers to go to their local Walmart to show their support for Make-A-Wish by taking part in a brief demonstration of a Straight Talk Wireless Android smart phone.  For every shopper who participates, Straight Talk will donate $1 to Make-A-Wish, with the ultimate goal of $1,000,000.

Demonstrations will be taking place every Saturday for the next three weeks at over 3,000 participating Walmarts under the banner "One Minute One Million."
You can check out the official website here:

Make-a-Wish is a phenomenal organization, and I couldn't be more grateful to them for what they did for Gabby - you can check out Gabby's Wish Trip this summer here, here, here, here, and here.

So, if you're at WalMart this weekend, please consider stopping by for a demo - it's just a few minutes out of your day, but those minutes can help make SUCH a difference for a critically ill child.

You can do that, right?

This kid thanks you.

2. BFF Becka is hosting a virtual race and has GINORMOUS prizes to giveaway! She's fundraising for American Foundation for Suicide Prevention, and will be running Tinker Bell Half for Team AFSP. Giveaway items include Team Sparkle (MY FAVORITE), ProCompression (my favorite compression socks, in the BEST colors), and Aspaeris #MagicPants (another favorite!). You can check out her virtual race here, and make your donations HERE.


3. I ran Tuesday, and it wasn't THE WORST EVER. I also did weights (!? WHO AM I!?) Monday and Wednesday, just like my PFTW dictated.

I barely even recognize myself.

I have 3x800 on tap for tonight, and I am kind of apprehensive. The paces I was given, 4 weeks ago would have been cake, but I really doubt I can hit them today. We'll see.


  1. 1. I actually have to go to the W this weekend, I will be sure to participate.

    2. You're the best <3

    3. Weights? Did someone hack your blogger account?
