THE STORY:

Hi Family and Friends!

I have been a distance runner since I was in the sixth grade.  Running a marathon (and qualifying for the Boston) has been on my bucket list for a long time. For the 26.21875 mile run on October 11, 2015 in Chicago, my goal finish time is 3 hours and 5 minutes (qualifying time), but I am hoping to run under 3 hours

During all my years of running, I have benefited from public parks and running spaces; I have listed some of my favorites below! I wanted to raise money for this run and I liked the idea of being able to run for the Chicago Parks Foundation.  Chicago Parks manages the 580 parks in Chicago and the 18 miles of Lakefront Trail, which I know so many of you have also benefited from over the years!

My goal is to raise $2,621.87 (plus 0.5 cents)!  Your support would really mean a lot to me.  Hope I can get it done! Quoting the words from a recent best man speech I heard..."I got this!"

Sachin
