THE STORY:

I am honored run the New York Marathon for Nick’s Team for the fourth year in a row.  Many years ago my husband Mike and I began looking for a way to somehow take an incredibly sorrowful experience on 9/11, and do something positive.  We never wanted to forget the sacrifices that Nick and others made for us, or the feelings that we experienced on that day (Mike worked next to the Twin Towers).  Even though we never had the pleasure of knowing Nick, his life has changed mine in the most amazing ways – from inspiring me to go from never having run a formal distance race to running 5 marathons, to giving our family a way to heal, to sparking a desire to start a blog for first time marathoners (www.marathonessentials.com).  This year I’m so excited to have three of our close friends from Texas joining us on Nick’s team.  Nick’s team is truly a family and a healing place for our family.  I encourage everyone to participate on Nick’s team, whether as a runner, donor or cheering us on as we run.  Our family and friends have surrounded us with the most amazing support on this journey, and it has made all of the difference.  Thank you!  This run is for my husband, Nick, and our country.  May we never forget. 

You can follow my progress on Twitter: @marathonkaty; FB: /marathonkaty; and blog: www.marathonessentials.com.

Or you can run with us!  See below for details.
