Team for Kids Put Me in the Spotlight, and Other Notes

It’s been ages since I’ve shared any updates (more on that later), but here’s a good one: The Team for Kids blog shared my story, in which I talk about running and choosing to support TFK. Have a read!


So, About That Hiatus

June was a busy month. A wedding, camping, a very early work schedule and our own wedding preparations kept me from posting updates. I did get one race in, the Queens 10K, on June 18.

It was a fun, flat course in Flushing Meadows Corona Park studded with local landmarks, like the Unisphere. I’ve done it before and I’ll do it again. My stats are here.

Unfortunately, things got a little crazy after Queens, with work requiring a 4 a.m. wake-up for a week, and I got a little sidetracked from my running for a few days. All’s well now, and even though I missed a little bit of training, I’m still well on track for the marathon.

Coming up next: a four-mile race in Central Park on Saturday to support Boomer Esiason’s cystic fibrosis foundation. (Yes, that Boomer Esiason.)

And check back soon for an update on my fundraising efforts.

Help me help kids. I’ve got further to go in my Team for Kids fund-raising campaign, and I’d really appreciate your help. Read about why I’m doing this, and donate here. Thanks to everyone who has donated so far!
