26.2 miles for Boy Wonder.

For all boys AND girls challenged by Autism.

In honor of the parents who blazed the trail.

For those whose biggest heartbreak is yet to come.

In honor of my friend who flies all over the country to get health insurance reform passed for our kids.

And my friend whose words offer me comfort and hope that I'm not alone.

And her husband who tells me I can run it.

And my friend whose faith is inspiring.

And my friend who gave me a glimpse into the possibilities of the future.

And their siblings who grow up quicker but wiser and with more compassion then the average bear.
And all my fellow mama bloggers to the right and the rest of my village who don't blog but I think of everyday and fool around on Facebook with on a regular daily hourly basis.

A 26.2 mile run in the 2011 NYC Marathon for Autism Speaks Team Up in honor of our quirky brilliant beautiful children.

Legs don't fail me now.
