THE STORY:

Dear Friends and Family,

WE DID IT! Last Friday we crossed the fundraising finish line and raised over $3,500. I wanted to thank everyone who donated for supporting a great organization like Big Brothers Big Sisters and of course helping me to meet our fundraising goal. 

My Little Brother Stanley also sends a big thank you because ultimately this race is about him and why i decided to do this. Stanley and all of you are now my inspiration and running fuel for tomorrow's big run. And I want to shout out my wife Rashida again for her support the past three months while I've been training....Love You!!!

We all hope you will now come out and join all the excitement and fun tomorrow, check out the entertainment link!!! http://entertainment.ingnycmarathon.org/

So here are the details.....

My Bib Number is 28280 - You can use this number to track me along the 26.2 mile ING NYC marathon route. I am scheduled to start in Wave 2 but will actually be in Wave 3 which begins at 10:40 AM. I am starting in a later wave to have the opportunity to run with my dear friend and running partner Alisha Cowan-Vieira. I hear Laila Ali and other celebs are also running so keep an eye out for your favorite celebrity. 

No matter where I am on race day, you should be able to find me via TrackMyRunners™.

http://www.nycmarathon.org/athlete_alert.htm

TrackMyRunners™ via Web This free service will be available on race day. You can track up to five runners directly through a web browser. No pre-registration is required.

While i will have my blackberry on me it, I may not be downloading the spectator app since I have heard mixed reviews on it but TrackMyRunners should be a good alternative. I will also try to Tweet my location since I'll be running what i hope will be a manageable and enjoyable pace.    

Finally, some of you have still asked how you can support. We've already met our goal so here are some ideas:

1.If you will be in NYC Tomorrow, please come out and have a great time and find me along the marathon route. I'll love to see my friends and family. It'll give me that extra boost I know I'll need to stay the course.  

2. If you haven't donated and really want support please consider donating to Big Brothers Big Sisters or another great organization. I am asking my friends and family to also consider sending donations to Project Set. Visit their website www.projectset.org where you can find details for donating. 

3. Please sign-up to Twitter and follow my updates. I'm going to try my best to Tweet during the Marathon, can't promise I will tweet after mile 20 though...LOL....

Thanks again everyone for all the positive energy, love and support and of course for your donation...see you at the Finish Line, rs
