Tags: 2013 ING New York Marathon
I’m so excited to announce that I’ll be running the ING New York Marathon this year. I’m in the early stages of my training program, but the miles are building up swimmingly (runningly?) despite this blasted July heat. If I can only cut back on the popsicles and fro-yum, I’ll be good to go.
On November 3rd, 2013, I’ll be running on behalf of a fantastic charity called “Crutches 4 Kids”. It’s a small, but great little charity that helps provide injured children in third world countries with proper walkers, canes and crutches. As you can imagine, these crutches aren’t all that expensive, so your donations will really help a huge number of children who would otherwise not be able to play or attend school on their own.
I feel fortunate every day to have a healthy body that functions just as I need it to, and I’m so excited to have the chance to use it in a way that will help others who don’t have that luxury.
I’d consider myself very lucky to have your support throughout my training, and it would mean a great deal to me to receive any donations that you feel comfortable contributing towards Crutches 4 Kids. You can also help by forwarding this to anyone you think might be interested in helping.
Lastly, if you’re a local, for crying out loud come out on marathon Sunday and cheer me on! I’ll be the girl with the huge, impossibly grateful grin. I can’t promise I won’t tackle hug you at the finish line.
