A clip of Jill in the New York City Marathon! She's famous!!!!
Catch her almost at the end, wearing the poppy! You look great Jill!

In other exciting news, Steve created the first ever 10km TOY RUN to celebrate the end of the 10 k clinic he was teaching. The runners brought gifts for the VOCM Happy Tree instead of a registration fee. I was very sad to have to miss this event due to work travel commitments, however, I am really looking forward to being involved in dropping off the gifts at the Happy Tree!

Here's the link to a short news story about Steve's race on VOCM news.

Here's the photo of the racers and volunteers. Congratulations to everyone!

New York City Marathon

Sunday, November 7, 2010 0
Today was the 2010 New York City Marathon.
While I didn't make it in the lottery for this year, I will be submitting my application tomorrow for the 2011 lottery (even though I know I won't be able to run it in 2011) - it's one step closer to my guaranteed entry by 2013!

Sometimes it's hard having a goal that could be so far-off, but I'm feeling re-motivated by the fact that my fabulous friend Jill ran the marathon today! A BIG CONGRATS TO JILL! As we were chatting about it the other night I got a new sense of the energy that the marathon brings.

Juat take a look at these fans and choir along the marathon route.

Isn't that amazing? How could you not keep running with that kind of support?

Can't wait until I experience it myself.
