Hi everyone, Now that the N…
Hi everyone,

Now that the NY Marathon has come to an end and the totals are in I wanted to send all of my amazing donors a huge thank you as well as an update on the race. Unfortunately the race didn't go as I planned. Two weeks prior to the marathon I was faced with a difficult decision to opt out due to a knee injury. As most of you know, I have participated in competitive sports my entire life, so the thought of not competing in or finishing something I committed myself to was hardly an option. But after talking to my friend who persuaded me to sign up, I learned it wasn't just about beating my goal or finishing the race. The reward and satisfaction you get from running a marathon also stems from the journey leading up to it -- the months of commitment and energy put forth in to training. So with that in mind, I made the decision to put my health first and pull out of the race. As difficult as it was to come to terms with, I'm forever grateful for the journey and opportunity of training for one of the world's largest marathons -- that in itself is something to be proud of and I have all of you to thank for that.

I'm so incredibly lucky to know I am surrounded by such a strong support system. Thank you for not only supporting my journey but all of the runners on my team, and for raising money for such an important and timely cause in today's world. After the final tally, I'm thrilled to report Team Rescue raised a total of $21,322 for the International Refugee Committee, which is absolutely amazing!

Even though I wasn't able to cross the finish line I was still overwhelmed with emotion standing on the streets of New York cheering Team Rescue on. It was only further motivation to one day train again to take on my first marathon.

Love, Steph
