walk around the house like a GIANT champion!


the new york football giants 
celebrated their superbowl win today at the parade in new york city.  
during the presentation of the keys to the city for each player, 
eli addressed the crowd...
manning said the team bought into two messages.
"make it tough, make it possible" and "finish."


i am on my way toward running in the ING new york city marathon on november 4, 2012 with the help of the team at DetermiNation and many donations from many amazing people who have selflessly sponsored me.  
my little girl posted her donation to my page today. 


she is making it count!  click on the link & check it out....

my extremely talented artist-cheerleader-publicist-friend, nicole, painted up my running shirt and dropped it by today...

There are no tricks. Run because you have to. Run because you love it. Run because you want to be fast. Run because you want to be skinny. Run to find some quiet time. Run to sweat. Run to eat. Run to hear your heart pound in your ears. Run because you're a runner. Run because you gotta keep the streak. Run because you don't know why the hell you're running. Run because you fought with your partner. Run because your job is shitty. Run because you got no money. Run for the sunrise. Run for a race. Run because it's impossible. Run because it's easy. Run instead of doing the laundry. Run instead of watching TV. Run because no one else understands. Run because the cool kids do it. Run because you're tired of talking. Run for numbers. Run for feel. Run to prove something. Run because it f***ing hurts. Or don't run. If you got something better to do.
