So as of most of you know, I ran the marathon this year with a charity team. It was an awesome experience. I loved running on Saturday's with other people and having that feeling of being a team. This charity team basically trains for events year round. They will start training for the Maine Marathon and the Nike Women's Marathon in San Fran. They have asked if I would be interested in mentoring. Basically, they assign a mentor for every 4-5 people so that they have a go to person with questions about fundraising, training, etc. And it allows for some smaller friendships as well and people get to know a few people better in the group.
I am really honored that they asked me but I don't know what to do. I wouldn't be training like I did for the marathon and I wouldn't have to fundraise. I would basically have to be at 75% of the Saturday practices and I can pick the distance I want to run. But still, it starts mid-may and goes through September. That is a big time committment. The plus side is that it is near my house so I don't have to travel far. I am just so torn on what to do. It would be a really fun experience and give back since my experience was great. But we are buying the house and moving at the end of July and I am wondering if this will be added stress. I would be getting up and running anyway, so I am not sure how much of a burden it would be.
