I've been crafting and using my cricut for some fun things this season. I made 2 teammates race shirts for their Hawaii Marathon I used life's a beach and had a BALL!!! So I knew when I got mine I was going to use my cricut for mine. I wanted to keep it simple because Sometimes less is more...I know it's a hard concept but I had to keep myself focused. I had a lot of meaningful things I Needed to put on my shirt and Cricut came through for me again!!! I used Pink Journey for the awareness ribbon and the wings on Jody's name. I used Lime Green because it's the color for Non Hodgkins Lymphoma but I LOVE sparkles so I took diamond stickles and outlined it and BLLLLIIIIIINNNNNGGGG! I don't remember all the fonts I used for what but I know Plantin Schoolbook, Sans Serif and Calligraphy Collection were used. And again Stickled!! BLINGY!!! Each name is for a person who has passed from cancer, is battling cancer or Survived Cancer, All but my mom and Jody are in the colors of their awareness ribbon. My mom's is in Lavender (her fav. color) and Jody is teal one of his favorite colors. I found the Sweet 16 patch at michaels and KNEW I had to use it! The "Live the Dream" is the end of a quote my Aunt and Uncle Sent me that made me cry. It say's... Trust the Dream, Love the Dream, Live the Dream. And the "It's all good" is for my cousin who is battling a rare aggressive brain cancer and it's been her motto through it all. I have a crystal dragonfly which is my "family's symbol" and the crystal GO TEAM...because in Team in Training that's what we use to greet, encourage, cheer and rally each other. My name is is Tiffany Blue with Stickles...Tiffany Blue is very important part of Nike Woman's Marathon...Each finisher of NWM12 received a Tiffany Necklace as our Medal. I LOVE my race shirt. There is so much meaning tied into one little purple top. It carried me through my race!

Jun 26, 2012 by Andi Curenton The last leg of a 6 mile run... It's crazy to think just 5 short weeks ago I had a hard time with 2 miles, and in this picture I'm on my way to completing 6 miles. The crazy thing about that is I finished it in just around 90mins. And what's even crazier than that??? I ran almost half of my total event milage! I'm getting stronger each run, I look forward to the struggle of the run (it's a lot of work), and I LOVE the feeling I get when I'm done. It's such a great place! This is the hard part, I can do this! But I need your help to get to my event. July is creeping up on me and I still have a long way to go to raise the money needed for my run. Please support me and make a donation and tell my story and pass this along. Every donation matters, any amount helps, if you do not want to donate on here but would prefer to make a check to LLS and send it to me you can do that. You can send donations to me at the address below. Thank you to the bottom of my "Sole", Andi Curenton
Jun 13, 2012 by Andi Curenton I never thought running mile after mile could be so much fun! Even when it's tough it's fun. We have "dress up" training's

Jun 01, 2012 by Andi Curenton Well Saturday May 26th was my first Training! And it's the first time I ran in a month. To start my morning I met my sister and off we went. I have have to tell you I don't know if I was more excited or nervous about my 1st training. As much as I love meeting new people, in this setting it's a bit overwhelming! Once we got there and EVERYONE was so amazingly awesome I was fine! Not one person there made me feel like the "new girl" and I love that. It's seriously like coming into a family with open arms. DLF- Dead last finish... that's me and I'm proud of it. The joke is we were saving the best for last. But reality is for my first outdoor run, coming off a leg injury and not running for a month I was STOKED when I crossed the finish line and got my Total time of 28.45 for a 2 mile run! That is MY Personal best!! And I was worried I wouldn't be able to finish. Tomorrow is my second training and my friend and running partner will be signing her papers to join the team and I can't tell you how excited I am for that! Facing my past and running to my Future!

I don't want to forget my amazing journey with Team in Training and since my fundraising page is temporary I'm going to post my postings and updates from that onto here. I hope you don't mind. Some of them will be the same or very similar to some of my posts here but I'm just afraid that my page will be removed and I'll lose what I have written and I'm going to make a scrapbook about my journey and I want them to be part of it.
