A Big Favor

We interrupt this regularly schedule NYCM celebrating and reflecting to ask you all for a HUGE, VERY BIG favor.

You all remember my friend, Char, right? The one who got me into triathlons, helped me heal my broken shoulder (as my PT) and ran many, many miles by my side over the last 4 years?

Yep. That’s her. Twinsies.

So then you remember this post about her THIRD BQ. The one where I was lucky enough to pace her for the last 10 miles to a 5 minute PR? And the time that I was more proud of another person than I can ever remember?

That BQ race was unfortunately not enough to get her to the starting line at Boston in 2014. BUT, as many of you have probably seen, PowerBar is giving away 10 entries to Boston Qualifiers who were shut out from this year’s race due to the time cutoff.

Soooo….that leads me to the favor. I know, I know…these things are super annoying, but this is really important to me or I wouldn’t be asking.

Will you please, please go to Facebook and vote for Char to win one of the spots? You can vote once per day (for up to 5 people) and there are 4 days left!


Here is the link: PowerBar Entry. If you have a Facebook account, t is SUPER easy. No registering your email or anything like that. Just click the link, select “View Gallery” and under name, type in “Charlene” & hit “search” . She will come up and you just click “view” to see her profile. Then VOTE. Bam. That easy.

And then hopefully (fingers crossed) I will get to run Boston with the person who has been by my side for more miles than any other person on the planet.

    Thanks Corey and thank you to everyone who casts a vote my way. I truly appreciate your efforts in helping me get to Boston. It would be a dream come true to run it and evening more special to run with my all time favorite running partner Corey!
