T-minus 3 days until I set off to run NYC's namesake marathon. There's been a lot of debate as to whether this thing should even happen, but apparently the powers that be think it'll be good for the city to have a little cheer and shout after such a devastating weekend. United Airlines will match donations up to $50K for Sandy Disaster Relief, so I'm trying to spread the word. To all who these past months have helped get me to Sunday's starting line, help me in supporting the city that's making it all happen. Donate!
