Race Face!

Another great day to donate! Two marathons and two charities! Let's raise a combined $6,500 for cancer research through Fred's Team and low-income seniors with Housing Opportunities and Maintenance for the Elderly (H.O.M.E.)!

Donate to H.O.M.E. here (write in "marathon" in note section). Donate to Fred's Team here

It's back! This week, donation matching up to $250. Make your donation go twice as far. Donate today! Don't let it go to waste!

Wednesday health report: marginally stronger. Still lots of phlegm and general feelings of sickness. Summoning strength of will to make this my game 5. Call me Jordan, Michael Jordan.

Everyone I know is posting glorious and victorious pictures of themselves running the marathon. Everyone looks fantastic and strong, and even happy. I wanted to get in on the action, but my New York city marathon photos are a bit less strong. Here is a collection of my race faces in no particular order.

Top, L-R: Confused, Moment of Death, furrow of agony, 2nd row: post death, listing ship, and pain cave.
This is the most majestic photo I could find. And it is completely staged. Fred's Team drills into you that you have to throw your hands up, smile, and look up at the finish line. We even ran the very end of the race multiple time just to know how to do it. In the moment of that photograph I wasn't able to respond to my own name, but at an instinctive level I pulled off the victory pose.
Fake it till you make it!

Important information:
How to find the tracking app.

My start time is 9:50am
I'm the green wave (If you want to see me early in Brooklyn 'll be on the east side)
Around mile 16-17 I'll be running on the east side of the road.

Let me know where you will be (intersection and side) and I'll make sure to keep my eyes open for you!
