Susan's Rockin' NYC MARATHON RUN that NEVER happened - boo

Well as it turns out I haven't run the Marathon yet. I ran my 9 + 1 to qualify and then  after Sandy happend and ravaged the NY landscape and shredded people's lives and homes relentlessly- the Marathon organizers cancelled the Marathon. (good call) So I was then given an opporuntiy to run it a year or 2 after. I decided to wait until this year. However after running 2 half Marathons plus other lesser milage runs last year, I decided I needed to do a lot more traing to handle a full marathon with some amount of grace and ease. So I decided not to run this year. I may try again in the future but for now will focus on half marathons and smaller runs. That being said though, I will continue to donate to the Machine Gun Preacher's Angels of East Africa! 




I'll run like the wind and with your help  -  WE can raise money that will benefit orphan children in southern Sudan. 

 Sam Childers and his crew are fighting for these children's right to live freely and peacefully. They have been faced with incredible challenges. 

I invite you to see the movie 'Machine Gun Preacher ' and check out my blog at to read more about why I decided to run for the 'Angels of East Africa'.

(as a side note we also support charities both finacially and through volunteering on a community level "in our own backyard", and globally too).

Rock with Me!!!

(Trust me - I'll need all the suport I can get and some REALLY AMAAAZING running shoes).
