Goal and Gala!

This week I SURPASSED my fundraising goal and I could not be more grateful for the outpouring of support. I’ve said it many times, but truly thank you all again!

I had a nice 12 miles yesterday followed by an evening at the Greater Boston Chapter of the National Spinal Cord Injuy Association’s Gala. It was a very fun evening with coworkers and friends. The GBC is its own entity, however, we have a very close working partnership with them at Spaulding so it was a pleasure to support their cause. I was the happy winner of a tandem sky dive (!!) and trip for 5 to a local farm sanctuary as part of the silent auction. Looks like my post-marathon summer ahead is going to have a couple fun weekends!
Am keeping this post short, and pretty non-run related. But next weekend is the longest run of training and then we head into a few weeks of tapering. I’m sure I’ll have much to write about after running 21 miles on what I’m told is essentially a pre-marathon celebration, of sorts, with thousands out on the course for a similar run distance. Apparently fans and supporters line the course along the way. I can’t wait!!
Here are some pics from last night.
