Big Day Approaching FAST
Mar 15, 2013 by Christine Chan

In less than 3 days, I am going to run the biggest race of my life. A little over 3 months ago I signed up for this race out of fustration and wanted to prove to myself that I could conquer a big race, something inconceivable to me. During this time I have come to learn and appreciate the strength and heart of so many people that I have had the pleasure of meeting through this experience. The support of the people at TNT and LLS has been overwhelming and I am glad to be able to call them friends. Looking back I am also quite amazed I have made it this far and as cliche as it might sound, if I was able to conquer this feat there's really is no limit to what we can do as long as you put your mind and heart into it.


I am a mixed ball of emotions right now: fear, excitement, nervous, happiness, but most of all I am ready to see that "FINISH" banner at the end. See you at the finishline on Sunday :)


Thank you all again for all your continue encouragement, support, and making this a special experience for me.

Thank You!!!
Feb 27, 2013 by Christine Chan

I cannot thank all of you enough for the outpour of support you have shown me in the last few months. When I woke up this morning and looked at my emails and realized that I had reached my fundraising goal with the help of all of your support, I was beyond excited! (And I could here the faint "it's the final countdown" theme song playing in the background somewhere far in the distance... haha) This has definitely been a real tough experience for me, but one that has been incredibly meaningful and great. I have met so many great people and heard so many inspiring stories of triumph and heart. I also have grown to have a greater appreciation for mail carriers because like them I will deliver my runs in harsh winds, snow, and rain. All kidding aside, the coundown clock on the http://www.nyrr.org/ site is set and I am now focused on the running goal at hand. We did a simulation last night in Central Park for our times again, where I averaged about a 9:00/9:15 mile. It's going to be rough last couple of weeks as I have a jam packed schedule but I promise I will continue to push and cross that finishline.


*Keep visiting my page as I will been you all posted on my progress until race day.


Thank you!

Less than 3 weeks to go!
Feb 25, 2013 by Christine Chan

***Warning - gross post***


Less than 3 weeks to go until go time. I have butterflies in my tummy and serious doubts about the race. But I am excited that I will finally get run for all the cancer patients that I've been raising funds for and also prove to myself that I CAN do this! These next few weeks are going to be really rough, I will be traveling and studying so getting the runs in will be really tough to squeeze in. I've been hobbling around the last few days, reason being is that I have Subungual Hematoma or Runner's Toe on both feet. In English, it means that I bleeding underneath my toenail. Two words to describe it, "Yuck" and "Ow". The good news is that the pain is subsiding and I rather it happen now than a few days before race day. Other than that I have been good in that I have no serious injuries.


My only concern now is my fundraising, $375 to go!

Please continue to support me and please pass the word along :)


Thank you!

Almost to 13.1
Feb 20, 2013 by Christine Chan

This past Saturday I did my longest run yet - 12 miles!

I took on a lot of Lower Manhattan, Brooklyn Bridge, and Manhattan Bridge, East Side and West Side. I have a whole new level of respect for people who run marathons. Of course after 12miles I still made my way to badminton practice. I was not very mobile on Sunday to say the least. I am very proud I pushed myself the 12 miles, but I'm more worried how I'm going to be able to conquer the 13.1 miles now in 2 hours.


Less than 1 month to go...

I will need lots of words of wisdom and encouragement!
