52.4 miles in 9 hours 32 minutes...Completed!

It was a challenging course through the City. 50 of us started the first loop at midnight on Saturday. Some of the streets were completely deserted & it felt a bit like escaping from a zombie apocalypse. Others were peppered with high spirited bar patrons looking at us as though we were crazy to be running at that hour. But throughout, thoughts of my Mom, family, friends, & supporters filled my mind. Time passed quickly & I was finished ahead of schedule: 4 hrs 25min.

The second loop was begun just at the break of dawn. Although it was brighter & thus easier to admire the sights, I focused more on pushing through the physical discomforts that crept into my legs & on completing each mile a step at a time. 5 hrs 12 min later, I succeeded!

My overall completion time was better than I had hoped: 9 hrs 32 min, making me the 3rd fastest woman & 15th fastest overall. But more importantly, with your help, I was able to raise $1900 for the Michael J Fox Foundation, do something to help those with Parkinson's, and achieve a goal I once thought was out of my reach. Thank you!

In gratitude,
