THE STORY:

Dear family and friends,

Many of you know I have been training to run the NYC Marathon which is still happening this Sunday.  I have deferred my race number until next year.  When my power returned and I tuned into the news and internet, I was saddened by all the destruction I saw.  I couldn't believe the race hadn't been postponed.  Personally, I just can't see running through those buroughs while people are still struggling.  They need the resources more than I do.  It's hard to train for months and then pull the plug two days before, but it is just a race at the end of the day.  I will run again.  As a matter of fact, I have mapped out a solo course around here that I will run on Sunday instead.  My uncle Bill is coming from St Louis to see a marathon so I am going to give him one.  Rumor has it, I just may win this one... snicker...  That being said, not running in NYC on Sunday didn't seem like enough to me.  I made a donation myself when I cancelled, but I thought maybe I could do even more.  I have raised money running in the past, most recently for ovarian cancer for my mom, and many of you have donated to my cause and I am always so grateful.   I love to run, I love to race.  I love the journey to the starting line and all the people that help me get there.  I love that the body can do amazing things if you treat it well.  I love preparing my mind that the body is far more capable than it thinks, and to just let it go and enjoy the ride.  I love the spirit of it all.  That  comes out in the smile on my face on race day.  It fuels me.   So instead of running the NYC marathon, I will run here in my own Shoreline 26.2.  I hope to raise some money for the American Red Cross in a short time that may help return the smiles to the people of New York a little bit faster.    I hope you are able to contribute to my efforts.  I'll pick my feet up and put them down on Sunday anyway and hope to make a little difference along the way.  Thank you so very much!  

I will maintain my start time of 9:40 on Sunday.  I'm going to run over the bridge into Old Lyme instead of the Verrazano in NY and come back into Old Saybrook after about 11 miles so if you see me out around the Saybrook loop around 11-12ish, honk your horn, ring a bell, or hop on your bike and ride along with me.  

Thank you all again.

Love,

Sheridan
