I've FINALLY mustered enough motivation to sign up for an endurance event that's been collecting dust on my 99 list! #6. Complete a sprint triathlon

The Tri Latta Sprint Triathlon is June 12th, which gives me about 4 and a half months to train myself not to die. Luckily, I've joined the Columbia chapter of Team in Training, which gives me access to local coaches who will help me train for this event. I also get gym membership, and they will pay for my race and my travel expenses since it is in Charlotte, NC! Great deal huh? In return, I'm raising money for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) through my website:

Also in the works, is a "Restaurants of Charleston- Donated Recipes" cookbook. My plan is to visit many of Charleston's favorite restaurants (including 82 Queen, Bocci's, The Library at Vendue Inn, Oscar's in Summervile, La Fourchette, 39 Rue de Jean, High Cotton, Magnolia's, SNOB, and the Dining room at Woodlands Inn) and ask the chef if he could donate a recipe to my cookbook. Thinking about it makes my mouth water!! I can't wait to get started putting it together.  The cookbooks will sell for $30 and each purchase will add your name into a drawing to win THIS snazzy cookbook stand from Crate & Barrel.

I'm doin big things. BIG things!!
