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.
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:
|DiNozzo the Awesome Orange Cat|
|Kate P & The Crazy Calico|
|Caroline in Hawaii|
|Oreo and Tiger|
|The Lovely Lily Langtry|
|C.J. Buttercup the Cat|
|A Cat Named Guinness|
|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.
