I’ve made it! With less than a month to spare I have hit my December 7 deadline and reached my $1,500 fundraising minimum.

I now qualify to run the LA Marathon in March 2008.

Thank you all for your love and support.

Dear…

Nice term, isn’t it? Clearly a) I’m sick and b) I’ve gone through my weight in snotty tissues – and that’s a lot of tissues. Ask Kleenex employees. They’ve all received bonuses because of the sudden surge in sales…

A funny thing happened to me the other day. I was shopping in my local Trader Joe’s one evening after work. It had been a long day and the last thing I wanted to do was traipse around a supermarket buying healthy food pretending that I was going to cook for myself.

I’ve decided that running a marathon is like going on a diet. Everyone pays minute attention to what you put in your mouth and how often you move your body.

About author

Marissa Danielle Charles, 31, gorgeous reporter, wacky, funny, smart, single. I'm British, but I live in Los Angeles 5ft 8, Pisces, share my birthday with Drew Barrymore. (We're twins except that I'm chocolate, she's vanilla and a year older than me!) Lurrrve music – everything from reggae to country, Elvis to Baron. Mum is from Trinidad and Tobago so I'm half Trini. Catholic in my heart although I haven't been to church in ages... But somehow Miss Marissa has faith that she can complete the LA Marathon on March 2, 2008. Please note, I have never run a marathon in my life. I haven't even done half of one. Strike that. I haven't done half of a half of one! Yet I believe that I will a) be able to run 26.2 miles by the first week of March 2008 and b) raise $1,500 by December 7, 2007, in the process. Like I said: 'Mad as a hatter!'
