THE STORY:

I am Bronx Irish born, Bronx raised & Bronx educated (St. John's Parochial, Fordham Prep HS, Fordham University). I make my living working in the hotels of Manhattan.

I am relatively new to running. In the Fall, 2012 I saw that the NYC Half-Marathon was being run on St. Patrick's Day; Sunday, March 17, 2013. Did you know the parade cannot occur on a Sunday? It cannot.. The Archdiocese of New York wants you in church and not gallavanting up 5th Ave. So they move the parade to Saturday.

That got me to thinking: after all the St. Paddy's I have marched up 5th Ave & drank in the bars of Manhattan wouldn't it be great to run through the streets of New York on that day. Without being chased!

I registered for the race, got in, was badly injured in training, missed 10 weeks of preperation, nearly dropped out, ran the race anyway and put in a respectable time. 1H:42M. Which got me to thinking again: if you can run a half marathon...

That leads me to running the NYC Marathon 2013. Keeping the NYC theme going and representing the most NYC Charity of them all: Citymeals-On-Wheels. An organization I admire and have personally donated to throughout my adult life. 

Please support a great cause while supporting me and my mad ideas. Thank you.

Citymeals-on-Wheels raises private funds to ensure no homebound elderly New Yorker will ever go a day without food or human company. Last year, our family of contributors helped us bring nearly 2 million nutritious meals to 17,000 frail aged in every borough of New York City. In addition, more than 12,200 volunteers collectively spent 45,576 hours visiting and delivering meals to our neighbors.
