Thusfar, my husband, Sheldon has managed the ins and outs of this webpage. He has been amazing, and given that I have the technical ability of a gnat, I am extremely grateful for his help. I feel, however, at this point, it's my turn to add a few words: mostly words of thanks.
I am truly touched by all the support I have received since undertaking the task of raising money for the BB Foundation. Uncles, aunts, first and second cousins, parents, in-laws, siblings, friends, colleagues, and colleagues of Sheldon's have been both positive and generous. Thank you to everyone.
The biggest 'gracias' has to go to Sheldon. The management of the fundraising has been only a tiny piece of his involvement. He has been a reliable meal-maker, kid-watcher, emailer and supporter during it all, and has not once complained when I have come back from a 3 hour run, and then slept another 2 hours to recover. He just plain rocks.
I feel so fortunate to have the opportunity to be a part of the marathon; I have been running for 20 years and could not imagine a more significant event in a runner's 'path'.
The BB Foundation is a formidable charity which supports many of the community intiatives supported by both the schools in which I work here in Ottawa. Their programs are extremely valuable to the community and I thank the foundation for allowing me to be a part of their team.
I wish all of my teammates 'bonne chance'; I have enjoyed reading your bios, and hope that the 19th will be a highlight in your paths, too.
