THE STORY:

Hello! 

I am doing it again....I am running another Marathon!  THE NYC Marathon!  I've known many people who have run this event and they say it's a premiere race.  You run through all 5 boroughs and get support from the entire city!  What could be more awesome?!  So, here I am - strapping on my shoes.....and going for it.  That means many months of sore muscles, achy IT bands, grueling long runs in the heat and sun - but in the end it's all going to be worth it!  And I get to eat whatever I want!

I am happy to say I will be running on behalf of another charitable organization (ran The Boston Marathon for Alzheimer's Association in 2008). This year I will be running for Gilda's Club!  My good friend volunteers her time there and is a big supporter of their cause.  She lost her brother at a very young age from Cancer.  I can't even imagine the incredible emotional impact something like that could have on someone so young.  Gilda's Club has given her the opportunity to share her experience with others and in turn provide support to those affected by Cancer (whether they have/had it or know someone who has/had it).  Having such an outlet is so important when you are going through something so emotionally and physically debilitating.  And the beauty of Gilda's Club is it's FREE.  "As an organization that is committed to offering all its services FREE of charge to its members, we have always relied on the generosity of our friends. This year, the annual cost to support each member is $500. Your donation to Gilda’s Club New York City can help to ensure that we continue to offer free social and emotional support to all New Yorkers who are living with cancer."  

So please help support my run by supporting the lives of those affected by Cancer!  I'm sure Gilda would appreciate it - and if she were here she'd give you a NOOGIE! 

"There is no real security except for whatever you build inside yourself."
