Thanks to your help, I've managed to raise $875 so far for the Organization for Autism Research. I can't believe how much support I've received! Thank you all so much! I completed the half marathon on Sunday in 2:00:50. My time far exceeded my expectations, but since I was that close to 2:00 I wish I could have broken it! My uncle had pledged to increase his donation if I broke 2 hours, but (foolishly) I didn't wear a watch so I didn't realize just how close I was. I know could have done it! Oh well! It was an exciting event, and I truly did enjoy 11 of the 13 miles. :-)
I felt proud to be part of OAR's team during the event and had the pleasure of speaking with a woman who has a son with autism and appreciated the support. I have also been able to share some of the reources available from OAR with colleagues and parents. Overall every part of the past ten weeks from deciding to train to joining OAR's cause to race day have been very memorable, and I thank you all for being part of it!
If you know anyone who still wants to donate please let them know that they can donate through October 16th. Thanks!
