I've been training for the NYC Marathon during the first 4 months of my pediatric internship. Hurricane Sandy and the devastation that it brought to my home on the Jersey Shore and NYC put a huge damper on my excitement for the marathon. I did not think I would be running the race this weekend. I just found out today that the marathon is happening, and I would like some good to come from it. I'm hoping to raise money to help those affected in Monmouth and Ocean Counties, NJ but fundraising for the Food Bank of Monmouth and Ocean Counties. Many of the shore towns in these counties are completely devastated. People have lost their homes and are without food and water.
