I REACHED MY FUNDRAISING GOAL FOR TEAM AUTISM SPEAKS!! Yes, I've raised $2627.45. Unbelievable!! I was able to achieve this with a lot of support from you guys out there in bloggerland, and of course with support of family, friends, friends of friends, and my wonderful co-workers. THANK-YOU everyone for your support. Back in the beginning of June, when I was bummed at not having been chosen in the lottery drawing to run in the marathon. I posted that I was thinking about joining team Autism Speaks, and you guys encouraged me to. As promised, you helped me raise the money needed to run through your generous monetary and also with written support. With 8 days to go before the marathon, I no longer have to worry about the fundraising part of it. Number 44355 can now focus on running a few more times, carb loading, and then heading to the Big Apple in a week in preparation for next Sunday's marathon. Yes. I'm number 44355. I haven't yet figured out how that number relates to anything in my life, lol. Also, I'll be starting my run at about 10:20 a.m. EST that morning. Of course I'll be repeating all of this in a post or two closer to the marathon. Thanks again everyone for your support.
