NYCM: Race to Recover
I’ve been quiet the past week or so with the incoming hurricane and its devastating aftermath. NYRR, the City, and partnering agencies decided the 2012 New York City Marathon will continue as scheduled. This post is not intended to be a forum for opinions on this matter. There are a variety of other social media options for that. Rather, as I’ve decided to run the race, I have also chosen to turn this run into a means to raise much-needed relief funds for the city.
Join me in supporting the Mayors Fund, which is providing recovery efforts around New York City. Perhaps consider a $26.2 gift to this fund. It’s $1 for each mile I’ll be running with New York City in my heart. This is my home; I wish nothing more than to see its indomitable, amazing residents recover and stand stronger than ever.

No gift is too large or too small. All are received with equal heart-felt appreciation and gratitude.
On a personal note, I offer thanks not just for your encouragement throughout the miles of training; but also for standing with me now. This journey was one in which I became a better version of myself. I already feel I’ve achieved much of what I set out to do. Now, I aim to make this race about the city I call home and the people who make it the greatest place on Earth to be.
