Posts Tagged ‘Katy Perry Wig’

I thought we had a legitimate shot.  I really did.  A comment from a friend of Katy’s – one degree of separation – that was all it was ever really gonna take; someone her knew her.  I am so appreciative of all the tweets to Katy that you all have posted over the last month and a half; I am grateful to all those who signed my petition to her.

In the end, it just didn’t work out.

Last night, around 3AM, I received an email from Katy’s friend saying he just hadn’t heard back.  He suggested going ahead as planned, taking pictures, writing a post – maybe Katy would comment or re-tweet it.  I can’t afford to buy a wig for every runner who volunteered to run NYC in the blue wig and I certainly can’t ask them to buy their own.

I get it.  I do.  With a schedule like hers, she might not have even seen the emails yet.

It’s too bad, really.  The visual impact of 25 – 50 runners, all wearing blue wigs in support of Autism Speaks would have been fantastic.

It just didn’t work out.

And I am bummed.


I know it was a silly thing.

In light of the devastation left behind by Sandy, I know this is ridiculous to even be writing about, but I feel it’s only fair to let those who volunteered their time, tweets and money know that I will still be running in a Katy Perry Blue Wig – it will be the cheap model from iParty; it won’t be hers.


It was a long shot at best anyway…I just really thought this one was gonna work out.

Thank you again for all you support.  See you in New York!

Which means:

I will be running the 2012 New York City Marathon with the Katy Perry Blue Wig.  Thank you to all who have donated to my cause.  I am blessed to have you in my life.  For those who would still like to give, please consider giving to Jess’ Boston Walk page – her company will match donations made to her page dollar for dollar.  The link is —>HERE<—.

Because you beat the deadline by a full day, I will be wearing this for Boston 13.1 on Sunday:

Thank you again!  You are amazing! I am blessed to know you. I am lucky to have you. I am humbled by your friendship.
