This thing got WAY bigger than I ever could have imagined. And, because I promised I would if I hit $1,000, I will be getting a tattoo before my marathon on October 14. (Side note: Please stop asking what I’m getting. I don’t know yet.)

Thanks again SO much to all those who helped me with this! My race wall is still filling up, and cards/letters, etc are still welcomed until October 14, when I hope I can have it completely filled. I’ll leave you with this picture…


Pay it forward,
