As we all know by now, it's been a long week for East Coast folks (and those around the country who love them) because of Hurricane Sandy. Like I've said before, this feels like a bit of an ordeal for me and I am staying with people I love who have opened their door for as long as I need it. I realize that I'm one of the extremely lucky ones.
For those who aren't so fortunate, there are some great sites you can check out if you're interested in helping out.
This is a great site that gives some options for various ways to give of time and/or money.
And this kid is awesome and could probably teach me a thing or two. .
Ok, it looks like this is going to be an East Coast-centric wrapup - sorry guys! So while there is some controversy over the decision to go ahead with the marathon this Sunday, I have a few friends running it and I want to send them all of the good marathon/running vibes I can. I've run some marathons myself and know how this day is a culmination of hours and days and months of training and sacrifice and pain.
Good luck runners and friends!!
And now....the Video of the Week.
In anticipation of the Presidential Election on Tuesday, I thought this was appropriate. Don't forget to exercise your right to vote!
Happy Friday, everyone, see you next week!
