I wanted to thank all of you…
I wanted to thank all of you once again for donating to my cause. Together, we raised $3,765 for the American Institute for Cancer Research. This is 25% OVER my goal. As well, if I am reading it all correctly, we raised more than anyone else in the SF Marathon for this cause. I got a sleeveless T-shirt, which I will never wear, a headband/earphone combo thingy that fits a nano that Apple no longer makes, and a water bottle, which I will DEFINITELY use.

More importantly though, we all contributed to a cause which has affected way too many. Cancer can leave you feeling helpless, and I can only hope that we made a dent in eradicating that feeling.

Anyway, it means a lot to me.

For those who are curious, I was not posting my own goal for this race. I have an overall goal in some day completing a half marathon in under 2 hours, but I knew I would not achieve that when I signed up for this one. I considered this a start to getting running again. For those I have not yet bored with the story, I injured myself in training for NY 6 years ago, and then sustained a different injury in NY. I had not really run any length or with any regularity since. Now I have, and am determined to slowly build my stamina up. Your contributions not only aided cancer research, but also aided me in giving me a boost of support throughout. So thank you.

So my goal was 2 hours 25 minutes, which would have been a little over an 11 minute mile pace. In my head, I wanted to cross with 11 minute miles. After sustaining my injury on monday (a calf cramp/strain that had me questioning whether I would actually run), my goal switched to not being asked to get on the sidewalk. I wanted to finish within SF's time limit which is 3 hours for the first half marathon. A fairly fast paced walk would put a half marathon at 3 hours 15 minutes.

I crossed the finish line officially with a time of 2 hours 26 minutes, which is a pace of 11'09", so just shy of my original goal.

Thanks again for all your support.

Best,
