A year ago, running was the last thing I ever thought I would get into. Now, after successfully tackling my first 5km race in June of 2014, I've decided to go big or go home and commit to training for the New York marathon in November 2015. For years I've watched the London and New York marathons and thought "one day...'. That day has come. Having struggled with my weight for as long as I can remember, this will be a huge personal challenge, but one I can't wait to dig into.
I'm running on behalf of the Central Park Conservancy, an amazing non-profit organization that desperately needs financial support to keep up with the costs of running Central Park for the 40 million visitors it receives every year. The Park is a huge asset to the community and the Conservancy contributes 75% of its $57 million annual budget.
I have a fundraising target of $3,500 in order to participate, so please dig deep for this great cause. And if you're still not convinced, isn't me running for 26 miles - TWENTY SIX MILES! - not worthy of a generous donation?
Thanks everyone for your support!
