I am so excited to be participating in the last leg of the Timex One Relay tomorrow!
“The Timex ONE Relay is an 800-mile, 22-day journey featuring more than 100 runners and spanning the distance between two of the most iconic marathons in the world, Chicago and New York. The ONE Relay is a fully interactive event, all powered by the Timex IRONMAN ONE GPS+. Timex will be making a charitable donation of $100 per mile, spread across a number of causes chosen by the individuals who are running in the Timex ONE Relay.” –via the Timex One Relay website.
To be able to participate in such a unique event that is helping raise money for many different charities is an honor! My leg will consist of 6 miles in Manhattan and I will be running to raise money for the ASPCA!
You can support the runners by heading over to the ONE Relay website and send a message that will show up on the relay watch! How cool is that?? I am looking forward to reading the messages tomorrow that come over when I run!
This event is the kickoff for what I imagine will be one of my most amazing weekends! On Sunday I will running the NYC Marathon and I just cannot wait!!! If you want to follow my marathon weekend journey starting with the ONE Relay, you can connect with me on both Instagram and Twitter, which is where I will be posting all my pictures and updates throughout the weekend!
Any last tips for a first time marathoner???
