Dreadmill 24 Update...

I got the thumbs up from Mountainside Fitness today regarding my shot at the 24 hour run on the treadmill! Woo-hoo! Sweet! I am so excited! I think I am still on a runner's high from my 10+ hour run on Tuesday! I am going to speak with the general manager next week to square away the details as to when the event will take place. I will keep you all posted!

Oh! And I got hired as a group fitness instructor today! (:
