I'm participating in the 2011 NYC Marathon on behalf of the Grassroots Soccer team!
After college a friend of mine suggested I run a marathon with him. I initially thought this was borderline crazy -- I had never been a serious runner and I couldn't even remember if I had run double-digit mile totals in a single outing.
I ended up hooked on running, and finishing the Providence Marathon in 3:28, under my goal time. Now, I'm back in the marathon groove, but this time with an even better twist.
Teaming up with Grassroots Soccer for the NYC Marathon affords me two great opportunities: first, to help out an amazing cause that promotoes HIV/AIDS awareness and education through the power of soccer, and second [less important], to run in one of the world's great races in hopes of beating my new finish time goal.
Keeping with the numbers theme, I have two goals:
1) Raise at least $3,000 for Grassroots Soccer
2) Beat a finish time of 3 hours, 5 minutes
And I need your help! Please consider donating to the Grassroots Soccer marathon team -- every little bit counts. And (less importantly), leave all the encouraging/taunting comments you want as I train.
Thanks in advance,
