Hair today......

I have been looking for ways to be a better person. I'm a (Beginning) Buddhist, so Karma, Dharma, peace and love and all the stuff is what I'm very interested in. I decided to cut my hair and donate it. I did some research and found a place that would take my 9" hair before I cut it. I talked to Troy about it, let him know that I wanted to help someone that needs it, since I'm not able to donate financially.

I feel strange without hair, but I've cut it before so it's not that bad. I'm just excited that I can do that. My (future) mother-in-law's hair thinned when she was going through chemo, so it affects me personally.

I went online to get the paperwork to donate it and re-read the donation requirements. NO colored hair! OMG!!! But.... I found another company that doesn't matter that specifically makes wigs for children (which I really feel would benefit more because they're more delicate).

I wanted to mail everything today but they had a notice that I can donate $20 and get a shirt... so of course I want that. Maybe every few years I can do it and collect t-shirts!

I think I'm on my way to being a better person.

btw... I wasn't such a horrible person, but I wasn't good.

Run, bitch, run!

Ok... .so I wanted to do the Phillies 5k, but registration was sold out before I could sign up. I was soooo excited to do it! I'd decided that I was going to try to run it (jog?), so I was really disappointed.

So, I decided that I'm going to train to run anyway. That is not the only 5k happening this year. I could even pick one that is for a real cause, not the vague "Phillies Charities" that theirs way. Seriously, what charities?

I looked online to see how a girl like me could be a "runner". Couch to 5k! In 9 easy (ha!) weeks I could become a runner. I was already starting to plateau doing the ellipical trainer... it was getting easy(ish). So what the hell? I'm one day short of completing week 2. Yesterday I was going to DIE. But I kept doing it. It's not supposed to be easy. If it was, everyone would do it.

I have blisters on my feet, calf pain, foot pain. But I'm going to finish this. I'm going to run a 5k. :)
