Here's my spin for the week! Spin Cycle Friday! "I work out!" http://viewfromdownhere-viewfromdownhere.blogspot.com/2012/09/i-work-out.html

Ginny Marie

That is so great, Gretchen! I hope you raise oodles of money! When I think of epilepsy, I don't think of someone as disabled as Sophie, which means we must need more awareness.

My brother-in-law's brother had epilepsy, and when he was in college, he got tired of taking his medicine so he stopped taking it. He died during a seizure. I know it must have torn his parents apart.

Beloved's cousin is a neurosurgeon who specialized in the treatment of pediatric epilepsy, so I will be more then happy to sponsor your run.

And my spin is up: http://www.janssushibar.com/?p=14574



My post is up.

And I would be very self-conscious if people drove by shouting at me as I was running. I feel dorky enough doing it without people hollering at me!

You GO girl! ;)

Such a worthy cause - a friend of mine had a form of epilepsy - she wasn't diagnosed *specifically* with epilepsy, but did have seizures and they never could figure out *why* she'd have seizures. I witnessed one of her seizures once when I was helping her move - it was scary. Like Ginny said, I never thought of epilepsy as severe as Sophie, so we definitely need more awareness.


I run around the park near our house--once around is half a mile. I'm doing two laps right now. In the morning, in the dark, when no one is around to see my looking awkward and totally uncoordinated.
The first few times I ran it I was wiped when I got home. Now I'm tired, sweaty, but like you, not wiped. And I'm toning up and losing weight which is a nice motivator. I still don't like running, but I'll stick with it until weather drives me indoors.

Good luck with your race.


You are awesome, by the way! Way to go! But running to NPR? I need something a little more upbeat than that so I play my crappy pop music :-)


Go you!! I am LMAO at you running with NPR on your iPod. That's so awesome, I can't even describe its fabulosity.

I asked my sister if she wanted to join you in the 5k, but she's unavailable that day. I so want to hook you two up for a race sometime, though!


I'm pretty damned impressed with you, too! I'm not much of a runner, so to me, running 28 minutes straight is amazing!

Sprite's Keeper

Awesome! I need to get my butt back on the treadmill. I kept saying I wasn't because I was trying to get Sprite into a routine at school, but school's been in session for over a month now. Think she's got it down? :-)


Go, Gretchen, go! You are doing an amazing thing!
Speaking of running, last night I dreamed I ran around my high school track eight times without stopping...boy, was that a dream!

 Elizabeth Aquino

OMG! I can't believe I missed this post! YOU'RE RUNNING FOR 28 MINUTES NOW?

Good lord, I'm so impressed but most of all so moved and thankful that you're running for Team Sophie. I love you much, Gretchen. You really are one of the kindest, most generous people I've ever met.
