It Begins Again...

After a loooooonnnggg time off to deal with two years of crap I am back.  I was informed this morning that I will be given a number  for this years Boston Marathon and I couldn't be happier.  Sure, my wife is going through radiation treatment for breast cancer and sure, I am out of work for the 2nd time in two years and sure, the very day I find out that I have a number, it snows but what the hell...No Guts, No Glory.

I am putting the past behind me and focusing on the road in front of me.  For those of you that recall my last marathon (if you don't you can read about it in past posts on this blog) I had two goals.  One was to raise $2,000 for the amazing folks at NF Inc Northeast and the other was to finish in under 5 hours.  I am happy to say that goal number one was reached but I was disappointed to come up short on the second one.  This year I have set my fundraising goal at $3,000 and I hope to beat that handily.  My race goal will again be to beat the elusive 5 hour mark. 

Please Please Please help me reach my fund raising goal by donating as much as you can help us eliminate Neurofibromatosis.  You can donate a few different ways:

  1. Donate by credit card through my fundraising website here.
  2. Donate by making a check out to NF Inc., NE and slip that bad boy in an envelope and mail it to
                                                      NF, Inc., NE
                                                      9 Bedford Street
                                                      Burlington, MA 01803

or 3. You can just send me a check made out to NF Inc NE and I will make sure it gets to the proper parties....Trust me. :)

If you would like to find out more about NF Inc NE, please take a moment and visit their website Here.

I thank everyone in advance for your generosity.  It never ceases to amaze me just how amazing people can be.

I'll be updating this blog on a regular basis as I continue my training for the big day.

Til then...
