I have invited you all to my Astrocytoga Party because you have been a huge part in my life and I am so lucky to have you all as a part of my support sytem.
I WILL START OUT BY STATING THAT I AM NOT RUNNING THE 5K RACE. PLEASE DON'T LET THAT SCARE YOU AWAY FROM SIGNING UP AND RUNNING IT. AFTER THE 5K THERE WILL BE A 1.5 MILE 'WALK OF HOPE' THROUGH DUKE GARDENS THAT I'M HOPING EVERYONE CAN JOIN IN ON, WITH THEIR TOGAS ON OF COURSE.
Momma Springfield is helping with the togas. She's said that she can get them, feel free to bring your own if you still have one from college. I know that all won't feel comfortable in only their undies and a bed sheet, if that's you, please still join in by wearing your toga over some summer clothes.
Here's a statement and link to more info on the walk/run:
"Approximate length is 1.5 miles but because the route loops back to the event, participants can stop earlier if the walk becomes too tiring. The walk is wheelchair accessible but the Duke Gardens has gravel pathways."
Depending on my energy and strength level in late April, I may decide to run/jog the 5k. It's been a journey since late June of 2018 until now and I couldn't have done it without this group of people. I'm not asking anyone to donate money in order to reach my goal. If you know me well, you will understand the signifance of that goal amount and I hope you have a little chuckle. I hope that all can attend just to be a part of this amazing cause. If you can't make it, well that sucks, but I understand.
Only thing is, next time I see you I expect that you will be in a toga to make it up to me :)
