StinkaMissy’s Log, Nov 25 – Today I’m thankful that I could run in the CB UWI Virtual 5K (and walk ½ mile to starting point, then 2 miles to get back home) to raise funds for The University of the West Indies, an outstanding Caribbean institution and my alma mater. My run was neither fast nor smooth, and it was windy, but it was totally worth it because this fundraising drive supports scholarships for deserving students. It’s because of scholarships like these that I was able to afford my education, so I’ll continue to pay it forward. Thanks UWI!
Today’s 5.5 total along with last night’s 4, pushed me past my 60-mile goal for the American Cancer Society fundraiser (I’m now at 65.6 so far for November).
As usual I went to the Caribbean to fuel today’s miles. I confess that there was some chipping and a lil wining at certain points!

StinkaMissy’s Log, Nov 1 – I was tired tonight and it was a bit chilly. The temptation to stay in and cycle was strong, but I went out and walked 3.5. Only 56.5 miles to go.
It’s now almost a year and a half that I’ve been jogging consistently. This November, like last year, my challenge is to complete 60 miles in 30 days, raise funds for the American Cancer Society, and run the UWI Virtual 5K on November 21 as my contribution to funding student scholarships at my alma mater. This time I don’t plan to include cycling miles at all, so I’ll likely have to reduce my spinning to once per week 😟, but for good causes 😊. I may not post every day, but I will post at least a couple times per week so you can enjoy the tracks that keep me running and wukking 😁.
