Thank you for visiting my crowdrise page. By now you must have realized that I've decided to run the NYC marathon in November. But why have I chosen to do such a crazy thing?! It's insane, I know, but I do have a few good reasons.
First, I think it will be awesome! The NYC crowds cheering me on. The look on my brothers' faces when I actually finish. The medal that I will wear to work the next day. That kind of glory can't be beat.
Running a marathon fills me with just enough terror to motivate me to be healthy. Everyday, when I am confronted by the delicious cafeteria cakes and cookies, I will think of dragging those extra pounds 26.2 miles and I will eat the fruit. And I will get out of bed each morning, before the kids wake up, to build a stronger body to power me through. I will do it and the pride I will feel will be worth all of the struggle.
Finally, I get to be on a team (Team Wellness) with some great people I work with to raise money that we need to fund community wellness programs. I'm the Director of Food & Nutrition Services at Peconic Bay Medical Center, where we work to create, promote, and sustain worth-while programs to help people manage high blood pressure, lower cholesterol levels, manage stress, and achieve healthy weights. In today's healthcare environment, private donations are more important than ever.
Please help me to earn the money to make this impossible dream come true. I appreciate all of your support.
