The NYC Marathon

Wednesday, November 04, 2009

This year I was in bed at 9:00 pm on Halloween because I was resting up for my 4:00 am wake up time for the New York City Marathon the next day. However, despite the lack of celebrating, I did manage to get a photo of me in a costume.

I ran the marathon to raise funds for UNICEF, and on Friday night I attended a dinner for all the Team UNICEF members. When I discovered a UNICEF trick-or-treat box costume in the lobby, I couldn't resist putting it on. Pretty funny, right? If I'd managed to fill it with money, I am sure I would have been the star fundraiser of the team.

I'm proud to say I exceeded my initial fundraising goal and that our team raised $140,000 in total. I'm also proud that I ran the marathon in just over four hours with a time for 4:00:57. Not bad for a first time!

I have always wanted to buy one of those UNICEF box costumes to help raise money for UNICEF. Do you know where I could purchase one?
