2013 Here I Come!!!!

I am sure you all heard by now that the Marathon was cancelled. This past weekend has been very emotional but I have to say that was also a blessing. It has helped me to appreciate the people in my life that really support me….

A lot of other people who were supposed to run the marathon on Sunday have been fortunate enough to find other events in the near future to participate in. Unfortunately, due to finances…I can’t do the same.

I refuse to feel sorry for myself because some people have lost EVERYTHING!

On Sunday, I met with my friend who was also planning to do the NYCM and instead we headed to my others friends job, where she started a clothes drive to make donations…

I later on found out that my clothes went to a single mother in the Rockaways who lost her home.

Today I pressed “reset” and set my eyes on 2013…I headed over to Forest park and did 3.2 brisk miles

I hope you continue to follow me on my new journey…

Namaste…

  3. Amen! You've got plenty of time to run this race again, but you can never go back to help someone who lost everything, right?! You, and everyone else involved, did the right thing. And thousands of people are VERY thankful for that, I'm sure.

  5. I have to say that Sandy has put a lot of things into persepctive for me lately. The other day it took me almost an hour and a half to drive home from work and I was getting pissed, when all of a sudden I realized that I was safe, warm in my car with the radio on, while others had lost everything to the storm.

    Guess what I did then? I started singing out loud!

    I know you'll do great races in 2013! (p.s. do you not get your money back since the race was cancelled?)
