My sister is the runner in the family, not me.  I’ve been jogging slowly behind fast people since I realised that going out to run was something people did on purpose. I do it for myself, never to cross any finish lines, only to keep myself in okay shape in case I ever need to run away from something … lions, tigers, Chabadniks, I live in Brooklyn after all, so who knows?

The other day my sister called me and told me she signed up for the Miami Half Marathon to support the Hurwitz family in treating Yitzi’s ALS. She sent me the video and I watched it at my desk at work, in tears. Once I was briefed on the cause it was a pretty simple decision. I wanted in.

Lexi is my twin sister and we’re naturally pretty competitive. But since she moved to LA two years ago, there isn’t much we do together anymore. For me, signing up to Run4Yitzi was motivated by a few things. The first was to do my part in supporting the Hurwitz family by raising the necessary funds to support their medical bills.

The second was to find a way to feel close to my sister from afar, to run through snowy New York while she runs through sunny LA. To unite in our desire to do good for the Jewish community while finding similar roads to stroll on.

And if I can keep up with her, to Run4Yitzi together, like she so optimistically suggested we do.

Thank you so much for your support!
