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.
