My NYC Marathon journey officially begins in about eight hours. I should be sleeping, but of course I can’t. I feel like I’m 8 years old and it’s Christmas Eve
I hope to do Team Leary Firefighters Foundation proud. It’s been a rough year for me in terms of MS-ness: worsening vision, pain and fatigue–just to name a few challenges. So I don’t expect to beat my time of last year’s race, as I was of course hoping and planning to do in my 2nd year of the marathon.
In truth, I imagine it might take me an hour to two hours longer. And that’s a best-case scenario. My goal, like last year, is to finish. That will make me happy.
You can send me encouraging messages during the marathon; it’s free!
Just go here & type in words of support, a haiku, the punchline of a joke or quirky oxymorons. Give me some words, thoughts, silliness, some XXXs & OOOs, to get me through the last miles of pedaling ;0)
Thanks to all of you for all of your support. I couldn’t have made it this far without you, that’s for darn sure. I’d love to see your names flashing on the board as I go by; that way, it’ll be like you’re all there with me!. So go ahead–you know you want to!–create a little special something for me to see and be cheered by.
I only have two weeks left to reach my fundraising goal and I really, really need your help!
I’ll always remember what you did to lift my spirits and enrich my marathon adventure ~~~
