Initially, I had intended this post to be about the end of my fundraising campaign. But as we are close to race day, I have one very important thing I want to get to first...
THANK YOU SO MUCH
You believed that experience and education and activity were critical to healthy lifestyles.
You believed in Action For Healthy Kids and their mission of "Every Kid Healthy."
And you believed in me and supported me through 20 weeks as I trained and fund raised for Team Healthy Kids.
Because of you, over $3,100 will go towards helping kids become comfortable and knowledgeable with the healthy choices and active, healthy lifestyles.
I will be running with about 50,000 other people through New York City on Sunday. If you want to find me, I'll be the one with the giant grin on my face, smiling from ear to ear as I run with each of you.
Oh, you didn't know?
... Yeah, you're coming with me. While you might not physically be on the course, you and some people you probably know will specifically be in my thoughts during the mile listed next to your name. See below for your assignment. I'll expect you to be in proper running attire.

Thank You again.
