YOLO you know.  And here’s a story to that intention.

JUST become the 50th and last person to sign up to run a marathon at Fenway Park, Boston on 9/15/17!

Whoever would have thought my first run in memory of my Dad, in Boston, on 4.15.2000, would lead to this point of running my 130th marathon at this vintage, venerable institution of Boston and baseball? and be a part of the first time ever that a marathon has been run on such sacred ground?

Having lost 3 friends in just the past 3 weeks, this YOLO theme is alive with me; so, through a flurry of calls and emails, on Thursday 6/8 I just became the final runner of only 50 people who will run the race.

Yes, it’s a FundRaiser, in support of the Red Sox Foundation, whose manifest goal is to be a force for positive change for the Boston Community and yes, Red Sox Nation and covers Police, Scholars, the Jimmy Fund, Military, Community Center and MA Little League. Go to RedSoxFoundation.org for more info.

ALLLL of you here have been unwavering and overwhelming in your support of my marathon memories, whether fund raising or not, and so I make you aware of this special run,  so you can enjoy this YOLO journey with me and IF you are willing and able to assist with a donation of any amount, know fully it will be accepted with heartfelt appreciation.  I need to hit the following timelines - $1,500 by 6/30 - $3K by 7/31 and $5k by 9/11, now isn’t that an interesting deadline date?

Option 1:  go to http://redsoxfoundation.racepartner.com/FenwayParkMarathon/jimmiller

Option 2:  make a check out to The Red Sox Foundation/Fenway Park Foundation and put my name as Runner – Jim Miller in the notes section and mail to Mick Blume, Red Sox Foundation, 4 Yawkey Way, Boston, MA 02215

Thanx for your love and Friendship and support. Get ready, it’s going to be a great story, and get this, as of this writing, of the only 50 runners allowed, I appear to be the second oldest person running…oh great, my chance to be second or last in my 130th run!

With mannnny thanx,

Jim
