For nearly two weeks Kate and I have been asking Naperville Sun readers to participate in our 5k training, and fundraising if they feel so inclined.

But no one has.

It seems people in Naperville, or at least the readers of The Sun’s Potluck blog, have a lot to say about dogs.

And that reward arrived on my doorstep today in the form a shiny blue, itsy, bitsy iPod shuffle.
Yes, I may not have run this race yet, but I registered and that’s worth something – right?

So far it's been easy to start the process of fundraising for the Komen Race for the Cure. It's also really fun to print out suggested training schedules and post them on the fridge. But actually getting up the oomph to run, especially in this heat and humidity, is a different story. How can we get motivated to turn off the TV and pound the pavement - or at least rev up the treadmill?

Co-reporters at The Naperville Sun, Jennifer Golz and Kate Houlihan, are racing for the cure.

We are training to run the 11th annual Susan G. Komen for the Cure’s 5k race that will take place at 8:30 a.m. Saturday, Sept. 29 on Chicago’s lakefront.

If you know either one of us, you probably know that we are not the most athletically inclined – often choosing chocolate over exercise – but we are putting down the candy for this very important cause.
