Luke, the trike & I are waiting – sitting between two hunky firefighters – for the bus that will take us to the starting line. Please, everybody, keep your fingers crossed for a safe race for all involved! You wouldn’t believe how many folks it takes to pull off the NYC Marathon, all the staff & volunteers & guides & city workers. NYPD & FDNY – besides having teams/runners competing – keep everything on track & running smoothly.
Luke the Wonder Dog will be handed off to the lucky firefighters who’ve volunteered to take care of him while I “run” the race. I’ve packed a race day bag for him with treats, tennis ball, rawhide chews & his favorite stuffed animal. He just might be getting the better end of this deal, today 🙂
Thanks to all of you for your encouragement & donations & all-around support in this journey of mine; I hope to do you all proud!
