In the wake of the Boston Ma…
In the wake of the Boston Marathon 2014, I thought it was the best time to send a thank you for your generous contribution to my fundraiser and give you a quick rundown on how the day went for me. Here is my experience.
So the Marathon is over and proud to say I Finished! That said here's how it went. I ran a great 10 mi...and a very good 10-17 mile where I met up with my family and got to see my little ones...then 17-20 was ok but started to feel sluggish and did some walk run intervals to try to control the wall I was hitting but at 21-23 I was fighting some nausea that wouldn't subside, every time I would start to jog again, it would hit hard...I stopped at the med tent at 23 and doc said it most likely was overheat from the sun and gave me ice for my head and asked if I was going to vomit, I said maybe…he gave me a bag and a minute later it was all out dry heave followed by a complete empty of my stomach and all the Gatorade and water...good news was, like always, felt great after I puked, so I wanted back in...doc said mandatory 15 min rest, they have to scan you in and out on your bib, so no getting around it...I went back out and felt great all the way to the finish...and ran the whole way! All in all, I ended finishing the marathon in 5hrs 29mins. So, for those that know me I hate the fact that I had to stop, I hate that I had to walk, but I AM extremely happy I was able to finish and running! So yesterday, I was saying never again...and today, I am thinking maybe give it one more shot see if I can make the whole thing in one smooth run. I want to thank EVERYONE for all the support and well wishes, donations and just reaching out! The American Foundation of Suicide Prevention I ran for is very important to me and my family and this run for me personally was dedicated to my mom. I am overwhelmed by the show of support from everyone helping me raise money to help AFSP continue to grow and reach out in the community. As of right now, you have contributed to a total of $13,400! From the bottom of my heart I want to say Thank You, I am extremely appreciative for every dollar contributed!

Hi Everyone, With the Marat…
Hi Everyone,

With the Marathon one month away (EEEEKKKKK), I just wanted to take a moment to thank you again for getting me this far in my fundraising.

I am excited to report that I am 55% of the way to my goal and VERY HOPEFUL that after my fundraiser next weekend I will be well over the 100% mark.

Every donation made has put a HUGE smile on my face and warmth in my heart. No matter the amount, no matter when you made it, they all meant so much to me.

I truly appreciate all the love and support and I am so grateful that you have been part of this years journey with me.

Tomorrow I will head out for a 12 mile run, but next Saturday it is the big practice run from Hopkinton to Newton. 21 Miles total, with me finishing on the top of the famous HEART BREAK HILL! You will all be in my thoughts both tomorrow and next Saturday!

Love, Alana
