I Have Made the Decision!

And the choice for my marathon is.................

I'm going to Disney World!!!

I just finished filling out the paperwork for Roswell Park Cancer Institute to enter their Team Cure Challenge. I will be working with a fundraising expert there to raise $3,600. When I do, my airfare, entry fees, hotel will be paid for. I chose this marathon for several reasons.

1.) It's in the winter (jan) and it will keep me going through the "bad weather" months here in NY

2.) I have good friends touched by Roswell Park Cancer Institute and I'm honored to help them raise some funds

3.) It's Disney! Need I say more?

BTW- injury update: I am not 100 percent but much better-- The running is getting a bit easier but I need to increase mileage. The breathing is improving and I feel almost back to normal


  1. I'm jealous! I would love to run disney :)
    Glad to hear your on the mend :)

  2. Ha ha! Anything to get out of Buffalo in January right? After my February there last year I don't blame you! And it was pretty mild for Buffalo!

  3. Patrick - I'm sure you've already seen this: "U.S. probe finds abuses at Erie County jails" -

  4. Disney it is then sir. I admit I am surprised but having completed Disney I have no doubt that you'll have a great time!

  5. I was rooting for Disney all along. That makes two blog buddies (both from Buffalo, oddly enough) running Disney this year.

    It's a fun marathon. See you there!
