THE STORY:

Hi, Friends and Family!

As you know, I've decided to run the New York City Marathon on November 6 to raise funds for the Robin Hood Foundation. It's a really well-run organization that contributes to dozens of smaller groups fighting poverty and increasing educational opportunities in New York City. And just as Robin Hood's board of directors covers all its administrative expenses, I cover all my marathon-related expenses. So don't worry, your donation won't go toward my $200 (yikes!) admission fee.

This year, I'll be joined by 149 other runners pounding the pavement for the Robin Hood, and each of us has committed to raising $5,000. I've included some details about Robin Hood's programs below. You can also go to robinhood.org for more information.

As for my training, I'm not looking to break any records this year, not even my 3:48 time from the NYC 2001 marathon (the only other one I've run). I'll be running four to six times a week, with one of those runs ranging from 8 to 18 miles and another involving some kind of speed work—sprints, hills, that kind of thing. The rest will consist of varying loops of Prospect Park.

Whatever happens, I'll be having an after-party following the race at our place in Brooklyn. Details to follow!

So here are a few more impressive facts about Robin Hood:

  • It is the largest private funder of job training programs in NYC, spending $14 million in 2010 to help 6,000 individuals find and keep work.
  • It is the largest private shelter in NYC, housing 5,000 people in 2010.
  • It is improving education for tens of thousands of public school kids, both through mentoring programs and through its Relay School of Education, a master's program for public school teachers that focuses on improving classroom performance.
  • It funds health clinics and medical programs to combat obesity, asthma, and diabetes, as well as public education campaigns to help low-income New Yorkers get access to medical care.

Please consider making a donation to this worthy organization. No contribution is too small, and every penny is tax deductible.

Thanks so much for reading. And to all you New Yorkers: hope to see you on November 6 somewhere along the route! I'll have my name scrawled on my shirt this time.
