Volunteering for the NYC Marathon

"Training is like putting money in a bank. You deposit money, and then you can take it out." FRED LEBOW

I got my volunteer location in which I had been asking for...which should be an interesting day on race day....since I have signed up for two locations for volunteering.

2:30am wake up
3:30am at NYRR and then busing us to the start.
4:30am at Staten Island handing out bagels and then back to NYC at 11am...

Go to 18 mile marker - 92nd and 1st...from Lincoln Center...cross town and then back over to the finish line...LONG DAY AHEAD!

It's still very weird when I went out to the Monday group and had seen my Flyerville friends. They had been keeping up with the news and had offered their condolances, which I really do appreciated. I just have to go through some tough times in my life and enjoy the good ones. Memories, that's all you have left in some ways...I rather run a marathon right now than endure this other pain inside.

But...anyways...life goes on...

THANK YOU!!!! I wish I could've seen you at Fort W. I had no idea you were there with the bagels. I was sooo hungry, too ;)

You're doing the right thing by resting. I know it's hard, but your body will thank you.

We should all go out sometime soon.

Hi, Just returned here to advise you regarding Mobile Monopoly. This is a superb technique and WILL make you money, especially seeing as you own a website. Take a quick look at the video, the strategy is about using Mobile Advertising which is fresh and an unexposed market where you can make thousands by doing hardly any work. I promise you that after you watch their short video it will change you and it will start making you think. http://mobile-mastermind.com
