ORGANIZER: March of Dimes Foundation
EVENT DATE: Nov 06, 2011
Who would have thought that 2011 would be a year where I would be running 2 marathons??? After living 6.5 wonderful years in NYC and trying to run the ING NYC Marathon for 4 years now... being just a few hours away fills me with expectation.
It has taken a lot of sacrifice and long hours of training... but the will to get to the finish line is nothing without the will to prepare... and I've loved each part of it!!!!!
Running for FOURTY TWO KILOMETERS AND TWO HUNDRED METERS and pushing beyond what one can go is how I try to see everything in LIFE. You'll have ups and downs, but persistence and keep fighting is what fills you with satisfaction reaching your dreams/objectives.
As you all know... giving my best is the least I'll try to do.
March of Dimes provided me the opportunity to run and would love to give something in return to this great charity. Your help would be much appreciated.
