Am feeling a little overwhelmed and a lot humbled this evening as I realize that in less than three short weeks, Ryan and I are more than half way to our goal of raising $10,000 to run in the 2013 Boston Marathon to raise funds for Rett syndrome research.

My eyes have filled up and spilled over with tears on multiple occasions as donations large and small have come pouring in. Donations from family members, friends, classmates, coworkers and even complete strangers. I don't think one single day has passed that we haven't watched the amount increase.

We are so grateful that so many people believe in our little Leah. And we are grateful for so much support in thousands of different ways. We know not everyone can donate money, but rest assured we feel of your love. 

Thank you, thank you, thank you. 

And keep on spreading the word!!

In one of your last few posts you mentioned that your blog might want to know who was visiting it.
Well, I do. All the time. Whenever I have a spare moment, I check to see what awesome thing Maren has done this time. I am kind of in awe of you and wish I was more like you. I know I never make comments and I will try and be better about that, but please know we think about you and talk about you ALL the time. We miss you so much! (This is why I can't leave comments: because they are too long and I get teary-eyed thinking about you too much :))
