The New York City Marathon. This is the Big Daddy. 26.2 miles through all five boroughs. This will be my first time tackling this legendary race. It will be my second marathon overall. I recently completed the San Francisco Marathon with a time of 5 hours and 7 minutes. My goal for New York City is to come in under 5 hours.
I've been running regularly for about a year. My first official race was the 2011 Damon Runyon 5K in Yankee Stadium. I had no idea at the time that running would become such a huge part of my life. I moved from 5Ks to 10Ks to Half-Marathons and now the Marathon.
My wife and I are animal owners, animal rescuers and animal adopters. We know first hand how difficult it is for stray animals to live quality lives in the city. Your donation will go directly to the ASPCA which will help them enhance the lives of stray animals and aid in their fight against animal cruelty.
What you get in return
So besides the satisfaction you'll get from both helping animals and helping me get to the NYC Marathon there are also some great perks. For you crossword lovers out there we have a packet of original puzzles by some of the top New York Times constructors. And for you food lovers we have homemade chocolate chip cookies, homemade ice cream and we also have a few opportunities where I will come to your home (if you live in the NYC area) and make a 3 course dinner for 2 people.
Thank you so much for your help.
