THE STORY:

Hello Friends & Family,

Hope this email finds you doing WELL.  =)

I recently decided to run in the NYC Half Marathon on March 18th, and it's coming up quite soon!  It'll be my third-ever half marathon (the first being the Helvatia Half in Oregon, and the second being the Staten Island Half in November 2011).  

My current personal record (PR) is 1:50, so the competitive being that I am is training to break the :50 mark.  A reasonable goal would be to complete the race in 1:48, at 8.2 minute mile pace.

Though my race time is somewhat important, the MOST important part about this particular race, however; is that I am running for a good cause.   My philanthropy of choice is Gilda's Club, with a mission to create welcoming communities of free support for everyone living with cancer – men, women, teens and children – along with their families and friends. 

http://www.gildasclubnnj.org/

I pledged to raise a whopping $1,500 by March 30, 2012.   But, I am planning on 100% exceeding that amount. PLEASE help me help the cancer community. Every donation, large or small, is greatly appreciated.

Warm Regards,

Rachel Wagner
