Dear Friends,

I had an amazing experience in the New York Marathon on Sunday. It was emotional at many points. The views throughout were amazing and as much as I worried and planned for the many logistics at the start and finish, it is ironic that running received the least amount of my thoughts.

As I started on my 26.2-mile journey I was keenly aware that I was participating in an international event. The world’s biggest marathon holds the aspirations and achievements of many. I was privileged to be among 50,564 runners to finish this year’s marathon, the largest in history. So finishing in 27,882nd place in 4:34:32 is good for me.

I thank you for your gift in helping me to be there. Running for a meaningful charity was a win-win for me, but your support was the glue to put it all together and make it really happen. I saw runners running to end cancer and for Children’s Hospital in Boston and even for Martin Richards, who was an eight year old killed in the Boston Marathon bombings. So many runners are trying to make this world a better place. I was proud to be among them.

The wind made the day challenging and yet the hours still seemed to pass quickly. I was thrilled to see and be cheered on by family along the way. Though I may be sore and tired today, I will cherish your gift and the memories of a great New York experience for years to come!

Thank you again for your care and support,

Gail

Dear Friends,

I'm almost there!!!! 16 weeks of focused training, early mornings, Saturday long runs, and emails asking for your support. Together we made it. I have reached my fundraising goal for Community Access and more! In total, you have helped raise over $4,000 (and the team of 15 has raised more than $50,000 total)! Each time one of you placed your faith in me and added your support, I got stronger.

Together we will improve the lives of those recovering from mental illness by making sure they have a stable and comfortable home. Something most of us don't have to give a second thought to. Thank you for your support!

But I hope you won't stop there. You can follow me on race day, Sunday, Nov. 2nd, between 11am and 3:30pm. Hopefully after 3:30pm you can see my finishing time. Don't forget it is daylight savings. Set your clocks back on Sunday morning:-)

Use this link and input my name (there are many Holts, but only one Gail Holt):

If you aren't near a computer, there is also a TCS NYC Marathon app in the iTunes Store. You can track runners from there too.

I hope you'll join me in experiencing the largest marathon in the world! I can’t wait!! I’ll just ask you for one more favor. My favorite sign during the Hartford Marathon was “Don’t worry, at least it’s not raining” with the word raining crossed out and the word “snowing” written under it. Please think good thoughts for no snow on Sunday!

Many thanks,
Gail
