Thank you for helping me reach my $5,000 goal in less than 10 weeks. Words could never be enough to show my gratitude. If you would like to track me on Monday there are a few different ways you can do this. The first way is to log onto the BAA website at www.baa.org on Monday and there will be an Athlete Tracker button to click. You can search me by name or bib number. I am bib #29112. This will pull up a chart with my splits at various times during the race. I believe you need to refresh the screen for it to update.
Another way you can track me is through the AT&T Athlete Alerts. You can text my bib number 29112 to 234567. You will then be registered to get texts at various points during the race pretty much live time. Messaging rates do apply for this.
There is also a BAA App that you can download to your phone or mobile device. I did try using this a few years ago and found it challenging. Maybe it's better now.
If you plan on being at the race, please let me know where you will be. It's so busy that if I don't know where you will be, I could easily miss you.
Thank you again from the bottom of my heart for all of your support!
Cheers!

Stuff About Me:

Hello and welcome to my page! I am so excited to be given this opportunity to raise money for such an amazing cause! I am a wife, a teacher, an 8 time marathoner (this will be my 5th consecutive Boston Marathon) and I am fortunate beyond belief that I have three fantastic children.

My youngest was born at 32 weeks and weighed only 3 lbs 8 oz. She spent 42 days in a NICU before coming home to her 18 month old brother and 3 year old sister. During those exhausting days back and forth to the hospital, I remember the "family room". There was a tv, books, games, small kitchen always stocked with food and drinks, and couches. I would take breaks every once in a while and visit that space during my six hour visits. It's amazing how much a change of scenery and a cup of tea can do to rejuvenate you during an exhausting and stressful time. The Ace Bailey Foundation raises money for Boston's Floating Hospital for children at Tufts a Medical Center. They provide so much for families going through challenging and stressful visits to the hospital. The fact that I now have a chance to give back in a way that made such an impact on me is truly a blessing. I look at my now 6 year old and although I can't believe it was so long ago, I really does feel like just yesterday.

You may be wondering who Ace Bailey is and how this foundation originated. Garnet "Ace" Bailey is a former Boston Bruin who was killed in the attacks of September 11th. His family founded this organization to help keep his memory alive by making a difference in the lives of children and families going through some difficult medical treatments. They focus on creating family friendly, softer enviroments to reduce the stress on families. 

As a huge hockey, and especially Bruins fan, I cannot believe how perfect it is that I can use my passion for running to make an impact on a cause so close to my heart. I appreciate all of your support and be sure to high-five on Marathon Monday!
