I've been meaning to share my marathon update with all of you, sorry for the delay...

Some of you know that I ended up running the Seattle marathon on November 25. The best part was that my husband Dave decided to do it too! We ran together for the first 17 miles after which I slowed down (darn it) and he took off. He finished with his 1st ever marathon time of 3:18! I was 3 minutes behind him - a new PR!
I wore my NYC race shirt for inspiration and was delighted to see about 50 other people with the same idea. There were many high fives, head nods and smiles among those wearing the orange NYC shirts. Pretty cool. I thought of you all that day and greatly appreciate your support.

Your contributions enable the Chris Klug Foundation to continue their mission of saving lives by increasing awareness about organ & tissue donation. We just wrapped up our big annual fundraiser - Aspen Summit for Life. It was a terrific event thanks to so many wonderful partners, participants and contributors. Looking forward to another great year ahead.

Have a wonderful holiday!

Love,
Jenny

Well, this will be a race for the books! It was just announced in New York (thanks to my friend Shannon for the inside scoop) that the marathon is definitely a go!

My heart goes out to everyone coping with a loss and facing the devastation of their homes and cities. It's hard to imagine being at the starting line of this race in just five days. I wish the event organizers would take advantage of the tens of thousands of runners who will be in town and put us to work! (maybe I'll suggest that) :)

This will be the first marathon for three of the runners on our team. One of who is a liver transplant recipient. The race is 1 month before his 13yr transplant anniversary. He had never run more than 50 yards before and is ready to tackle 26.2 miles at the age of 62! I am so excited for him and the rest of the team who all worked so hard to get here.

Our team of five has currently raised a total of $12,955! And I can assure you that money will go directly into the Chris Klug Foundation's programs to reach more people with the lifesaving message of organ & tissue donation. Thank you!

I'm scheduled to arrive in Newark at 3:30pm tomorrow - fingers crossed! The plan is to host our donor awareness booth at the Javits Center Thursday and all day Friday and Saturday. I'm hopeful we'll see a lot of people!

I can't express how much I appreciate your support with this endeavor.
Will be thinking of all of you during the race and will be sure to post an update as soon as I can on Facebook. I'd love to break my PR of 3:25 but at this point I'll be happy just to finish!
If you'd like to track me I am bib #23315. Sign up for text updates or track me online http://www.nycmarathon.com/entrantinfo/trackmyrunner.htm

I can't express how much I appreciate your support with this endeavor.
My cell if you want to check in 970-216-2511

Thank you again.
Here's to New York City!

PS. The drawing for the bike is scheduled for Nov 6. Think I'll wait until after election day to announce the winner...
