I’m Doing a Walkathon !

My shelter, the Humane Society of Chittenden County, has an annual fund raiser called Walk For the Animals.  This year, there’s a 1.25 mile walk and a 5 K run.   Since they did so much for me, I thought I’d register, fund raise, and show off my athletic prowess in this event.

The festivities begin in two days.  I wanted to share my training schedule and my plan of attack for the course.  I know this will be inspirational to other athletes.

To prepare for the grueling 1.25 mile track, I started getting in shape about six months ago. I started with a 3 hour nap on the couch and gradually added time until I peaked with a 7.75 hour nap yesterday.  Every day of training included stretching, meditation, and multiple Vitamin D baths.

This kitty is also in training for the walkathon

I also created a fund raising page.  http://www.firstgiving.com/fundraiser/CatFoodBreath/2013-walk-and-run  Here’s a Big High Seven (that’s a high five with a polydactyl cat) to all my fans who supported my shelter:

Antonio F.
Brian Blank
P.J. Emery
DiNozzo the Awesome Orange Cat
David Kapp
Elizabeth Cribbs 
Ian Morgan
Kate P & The Crazy Calico
Patricia Castorena
Larry Ackerman
Caroline in Hawaii
Lillian Bargisen
Oreo and Tiger
The Lovely Lily Langtry
Tomek Mekelburg
C.J. Buttercup the Cat
A Cat Named Guinness
Captain Cat 
Howard & Nitro from the UK
Meiga the Awesome Cat

As far as the walk itself goes, I plan to tackle it from the couch. I realize that I would make all the other participants feel badly when I showed them up with my extensive training and my awesomeness.  So, instead of putting in all that effort to get to the walk location and back, I thought I’d go all out and just deliver a 9 hour nap in honor of the walkathon and my shelter.

Thank you, Humane Society of Chittenden County, for connecting me with Thing One and the wonderfully squishy lap.  You rock.
