Marathon Sunday came and went here in New York City, and New Yorkers were really focused more on recovery efforts than anything else. Runners from all over the globe that were visiting The Big Apple to participate in one of the world’s largest running events decided to help with the relief efforts by bringing needed clothing and goods to Staten Island. Other runners spent the sunny Sunday in Central Park, hovering around a finish line that felt so close…yet so far away.
I realized that, based on my marathon schedule, that the cancellation of this race would leave me one marathon short of my goal for 2012. 11 marathons in 2012 is NOT 12. I’m no rocket scientist…but that’s math that even a dimwit like me can handle. So I made a conscious decision to run a solo marathon the following Sunday, November 11th. That would allow me to finish my 2012 marathon of marathons in Philadelphia the following Sunday, November 18th. It was a makeshift, aggressive plan – but it would have to do.

It raises money for the Make-a-Wish Foundation, helping to grant the wishes of children suffering from life-threatening illnesses. Being s former wish-granter for the NYC Chapter of the Make-a-Wish Foundation, I can tell you first-hand just how much of an impact this organization makes in the lives of children. Please consider donating to this worthy cause. Thanks!
