|Dear Family & Friends,
I hope this finds all of you well! I know that the holiday season is in full swing and I hope everyone is having a terrific time.
First I would like to say thank you so much to all of you who supported me with your generous donations and to all of you who helped me with candy bar sales! Together we raised $2600.00 to benefit the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society! And The Nike 26.2 Marathon raised over $10 Million Dollars!!! That's awesome!
|I am so proud to say that although I had some set backs this summer, including crashing my car and spraining both ankles, I still got to San Francisco and completed a Half Marathon of 13.1 miles (slowly, but I ran across the finish line with a big smile on my face)! And now I have a new car!
My parents met me near the finish line. Lucky for them I was able to get them a ride back on the shuttle to the hotel after the event otherwise they would have had to hike back another 6.5 miles to the Bart Station where they had arrived. (They didn't bring their running shoes and clothes so they had some sore feet!)
Have a very Happy Holiday and Happy New Year!
