Yesterday a dear friend of mine said that she would give $100 to my favorite charity if I ran part of my marathon on February 13th in my bikini.  I’m sure she thought that I would laugh it off… but I am taking her up on it!  But instead of running the full marathon half-naked, I will be doing the last 6 miles in my bikini… ONLY if I can raise at least $1,000 for the Greater Birmingham Humane Society by race day.  😀  You can click here to give online through an account I’ve set-up on Razoo. It is a great fundraising website that donates directly to your designated charity!

I chose the Greater Birmingham Humane Society for several reasons.  Almost everyone in my family has a beloved pet from there, and the adoption experience is always a great one.  I also worked with a few of the people who run GBHS a few years back on an animal cruelty documentary.  Their kindness, proactivity, and compassion left a solid impression on me.  Keep up the great work guys, we all appreciate what you do on a daily basis for our furry friends!

Also, it is confirmed:  We will be shooting Ghost Ghirls the weekend of my birthday on February 19th!!  So the first webisode will be up by March 1st. Exciting!!!  😀
