Iím drinking for a good cause tonight: Jen was volunteering to work the door at happy hour to raise money for Team for Kids. Her friend, Ryan, is running the New York City marathon. She has to raise a certain amount of money for this charity in order to earn the blisters and aching hamstrings that you get after jogging 26.4 miles.
I know running for, oh, four hours doesnít sound like fun, but Iím actually aching to do the NYC marathon again: Nothing beats the energy you get from the crowd of people cheering you on at the sidelines or the feeling of accomplishment when you finally cross the finish line. And doing it for charity must make it the experience all the more rewarding. I may have missed my chance this year, but Iíd like to raise money by doing a half triathlon. I think Iím going to look into itÖ
