As in my training for the NYC Marathon & the fundraising for Team Leary Firefighters Foundation!
This week I’ve begun riding 30 miles on my long rides instead of the previous 20 mile average. (lots of icing of knees & hips going on over here, I can assure you)
It’s about 90 days till the race on November 6th, exactly 90 days from when I’ll begin to taper off on the training in order to store up energy, rest my joints & muscles for the big day.
I’ve got some exciting ideas for fundraising this year: an Etsy shop with all proceeds going to Leary Firefighters Foundation & a ride by all of the firehouses rebuilt with the help of LFF in New Orleans in the wake of Katrina, are among my plans.
My fundraising page for this year is set up with the basics already, and I’ll go back to fill in more text and the official “appeal” later. You can still access the 2010 Active.com listing, as well, though the donation link will only work on the 2011 page.
Please let me know if you have any fundraising tips or event ideas for me; I want to give my all in both training and fundraising efforts for this year’s participation with Team LFF in the NYC Marathon.
Thanks in advance for any support, and for all of your encouragement! Last year’s marathon was a blast on top of being a dream come true. How lucky am I?
I only have till November 21st to reach my fundraising goal and I really, really need your help!
