Today’s a rest day so nothing really to report here other than I’m overdoing the calories a bit today. I’m going to make it so I’m not over more than what I was short yesterday But yeah it shouldn’t have happened. Just a little over indulgence of peanuts and dried bananas so nothing major. Since I don’t have anything else to say I thought I’d ask my first straight out question and see what you think.
Last week Caitlin over at Healthy Tipping Point posted about bib transfers and race banditing and it got me thinking. I was wondering what you thought of the idea of running to raise money for charity BUT that wasn’t the charity of the race event?
The Half Marathon I am running in May is in support of the Ottawa Hospital which is an hour away from where I live. I’m thinking this may be a reason folks around my town wouldn’t donate. If I was doing it for say the local Hospice I may get a better response. The only thing is I guess the Ottawa Hospital may have their volunteers putting a lot of work into this event and I wouldn’t be “honoring” this work.
There may be other things I haven’t considered and this may be a moot point because I haven’t decided either way whether to try to raise money. I have a big poker tournament in a week and a half so will have to decide by then as I’ll have a captive audience that day 🙂
So support the race charity or your own?
