3 Weeks Till The Big Day

Over The Hump With Training

Yesterday I finished my last LONG run (20 miles!)  in preparation for the NYC Marathon on November 4. It was hard, but nothing like fighting cancer.   By mile 15 my joints hurt and all I could think about was the pain that these patients must be in at all times throughout the day.  I can’t believe in 3 weeks I will be running 26.2 through the streets of NYC!

I really feel blessed to get the opportunity to be running as a charity runner for  the Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation (MMRF).   I am running for the MMRF because they are recognized as a  leader in cancer research and budget 90% of every dollar raised to research.  In fact the MMRF is rated in the top 1% of all non-profits by Charity Navigator!

The team and I have made a commitment to raise a minimum of $4000 for the MMRF. We have managed to raise $1080 so far, and with only 3 weeks left we know we have a ways to go, but don’t doubt for a second that we will get there.  Thank you to everyone who has already donated, and for those who would still like to donate,  we would appreciate your support with a tax deductible donation.

Until next time,

Keep Running
