On the Way to Las Vegas Half-Marathon for Crohn’s Disease

So here I am, in the final throes of marathon training. To be honest, I’m feeling very nervous and anxious. It’s tapering week (the period just before the marathon when you stop training and let your body heal and prepare) and I can’t help but feel the irrational fear that I’m going to somehow slip out of shape from inactivity and be unable to complete the marathon on Sunday.

Like I said, it’s irrational. I expect to kick butt on Sunday!

What’s more, I’m going to Vegas baby!

Now, the run may be over after Sunday but the fundraising is still on until mid-January. As of yet I’m currently $2500 from my goal- if you haven’t jumped in yet now is the time!

Consider this my final pre-marathon pitch: December is coming up. And as we approach this season of giving please keep in mind the millions of Americans with Crohn’s Disease and ulcerative colitis in need of your help. Inflamatory Bowel Diseases are extremely devastating and as of yet there is no cure.

Help change that fact. Please donate today.

  1. Congratulations Nicholas on running the half marathon in just over 2 hours. That’s great! And thanks again for helping to raise awareness and financial support for children with Crohn’s Disease!

    • It was my pleasure. Sometimes it just feels good to do something good, you know?
