The Hay is in the Barn

A quick pre-race update:

First and most importantly, thanks again to each of you for giving to Catholic Charities in support of my NYC marathon run. With your help, I have raised over $13,000 – far exceeding my initial goal!!! I genuinely appreciate and am impressed by your responsiveness and generosity.

As to my time goal, eh, that’s going to be a tougher challenge -- long runs have been consistent, speed workouts, never as speedy as they need to be. I will see what kind of legs show up on race day.

Current weather report is 45F and partly cloudy at the start (perfect) with consistent 25mph headwinds for the first 20 miles (seriously miserable). I’ll be looking for someone big and fast to draft behind.

The race starts this Sunday at 9:40 a.m. for me and 10:20 a.m. for Mary Ellen. If curious while you sip your coffee and read your paper, tracking for all runners is available via the link:

If you happen to be in New York Sunday, please come by our apartment (74th & York) beginning about 4:30 p.m. for post-race festivities. Plenty of recovery draft beer and food will be on hand. Send me a note if you think you might make it.

Thanks again!
