Dear Friends and Family,
As you probably heard, the official NYC Marathon cancelled. While I wholeheartedly agree with the decision, there were a bunch of people like myself who felt the need to run for our causes as we had set out to do.
Yesterday I was joined by thousands of runners who ran a marathon through central park with a group called "Run Anyway". We raised money, food, and clothing for victims of Hurricane Sandy and volunteers drove cars bringing the goods to areas in need in Brooklyn and Staten Island.
The running was hard but I had amazing friends, my husband, and my sister bringing me water and moral support along the way. I thought a lot about Susan and how proud I was to be running in her honor. I am so grateful that together we were able to raise so much money for an incredible cause.
Training and running this marathon was an awesome experience and I would have not have been able to do it without the support of people like you.
So thank you,
