EVENT DATE: Nov 06, 2016
Friends & family:
I am a little late to the game in setting up my crowdrise page - but better late than never!
I have always wanted to run a marathon (New York in particular) and when my good friend, Bob Zimardo, told me he was running for a charitable cause that was important to him, it sparked me to do the same.
CitySquash is a great program doing a lot of great work in the Bronx and Brooklyn(!), and I am honored to be running in its name.
I can't say it's been painless, but am really looking forward to crossing that finishing line and hopefully helping a great organization along the way.
I really appreciate all the support I've received so far (from Brit and Andy in particular) and am hoping to make them and all of you proud.
Hope to see you on race day!
