BENEFITING: Cystic Fibrosis Foundation
EVENT DATE: Nov 04, 2012
In all honesty, sometimes I am still not sure that it is happening to me. 16 weeks to go till November 4th and I often cannot believe that I have a training program, I actually can run more than 3 miles and I am hoping to finish not just a marathon (which in itself seems like an insane idea right now) but THE New York City Marathon! A few years ago I could barely talk myself into going for a 15 minute mile. And now I actually feel that I can do it, even though I have no illusions about the work it will take to run 26.2 miles.
I feel extremely lucky and humbled by this opportunity. I have decided to do something to pass on my good fortune and, rather selfishly, to give myself another motivation to train harder. So I would like to dedicate my marathon run to a beautiful strong little girl, Gabriella. I hope one day there will be cure for Cystic Fibrosis and Gabbie and other people living with this horrible disease will have another reason to smile.
I would be grateful for any support and donations that you would give!
