Happy Monday!

After celebrating my birthday for the whole weekend, it was time to settle down and start eating right again! But, boy, was it fun! Thanks for all the great wishes!

On the news this morning, I heard today was the Boston Marathon. While most of us were happy about the above-normal temperatures, I know the runners and organizers would be very concerned about the heat. After training so hard and so long, I can imagine how disappointed the 4,300 runners who did not participate felt about NOT going to the starting line. I think back one year ago to my marathon training and know I would have been so disappointed, too.

So that got me thinking about the upcoming New Jersey Marathon that Team Push to Walk will be doing on May 6. In spite of the difficulties I faced last year in training and finishing the race, I do miss not training this year. For me, it was as much about the journey of getting ready and being prepared as the race itself. Having that goal just kept me so focused and disciplined. In light of that, I really hope that Mother Nature is kind to all the NJ Marathon participants this year and all the runners and hand cyclists can compete as they have been training to do.

I was very proud of my son, Darren, who completed 14.5 miles on Saturday as part of his training. Last year, he completed the half marathon; this year he’s going for the full 26.2 miles. Go Darren! Here’s his picture at Heino’s, our favorite ski & cycle shop in Pequannock, NJ.

I will be part of the support group this year, and am proud to have that role. We have clients, family members and friends on Team Push to Walk again this year, and they are raising incredible amounts of money! These funds will help clients offset their program fees for workouts, and will allow us to continue to provide cutting-edge exercise to people with spinal cord injuries and paralysis.

If you’d like to support our Team in general or a specific team member, you can do so by clicking here:   https://sna.etapestry.com/fundraiser/PushtoWalk/NJMarathon2012/. Or donations can be mailed to us at 6 North Corporate Drive, Riverdale, NJ 07457.

Come and cheer us on! Hope to see you on May 6 in Long Branch!
