Husband is gearing up to run the 2012 Chicago Marathon.
This race is no joke. 26.2 miles long. Thousands sign up & come from all over the world to run it.
It’s a huge event in the city!
I can’t wait to cheer Garrett on from the sidelines again! He tells me that that is the most awesome part (aside from crossing the finish line). Seeing & hearing the crowds cheering you on. What’s more, seeing & hearing your family cheer you on!
This will be his second time running the Chicago Marathon, and raising funds for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS). He did so in 2010, and finished that race in 3h:41m:54s. (I started to just approximate 3 hours, but I understand that exact time is everything to runners.)
Whilst congratulating him, I remember brief moments where I wished that I were a runner too. So I could fully grasp the magnitude of joy, pride, and accomplishment (& relief) that he must’ve felt when crossing the finish line. After several months of hard training & dedication. And then, to be handed a medal…
I’d probably bawl for days at thought of the experience!
It sounds funny, but I felt so honored to just know him that day…let alone, be his wife.
Anyway, I’m writing this post to request your help. Please donate to LLS.
You can check out Garrett’s TNT Donation Page for the deets on how to do so! It’s quick, secure, & totally anonymous…unless you want to give your name. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask.
