BENEFITING: THE MAYORS FUND TO ADVANCE NEW YORK CITY
in 2009, I approached ken, in the way I sometimes do with a crazy idea that I intend for us to do together. Most times he just rolls his eyes and tells me I'm a lunatic, but for this one he seemed intrigued, so I knew I had him. fast forward three years, a few injuries, many months of rehab and training and here we are, days before the big event.....
but this past week has changed the meaning of this marathon for us. We were very lucky to have had minimal impact from hurricane sandy, but many people who are very dear to us in the city and on long island were not so lucky. we would like to do something for them, and for nyc, to help them get back to normal. and lately for us, normal means running, a lot.
Please, give what you can to help our friends and our city, and to make this Sunday's marathon a tribute to what can happen if everyone takes a moment (or 26.2 moments) to do something for someone else.
