Good Afternoon,

I want to thank you again for supporting Blue Water Baltimore on #GivingTuesday!

Our supporters - i.e. YOU - gave so generously yesterday that we are a bit at a loss for words.

Anyway, we really appreciate your gift, and look forward to seeing you in 2015 at one of our volunteer events, our 5k, or maybe at one of our native plant sales.

Until then, know that we will be working hard to make the best use of your gift.

Again, thank you!!! You rock.

P.S. Look for us on Facebook, Twitter, & Instagram to keep up with what your gift accomplishes: we use the @bluewaterbmore name on all three.

Marathon day is over... and I survived! It hurt like hell toward the end (and I was REALLY wishing I'd gotten into the Chicago Marathon as I was slogging up the never-ending hills on miles 15-21), but I finished at 4:41, right on the dot of my goal time.

Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU for your support... especially those of you who donated who I don't even know. :) All together, we raised $1065 for CANTER Mid Atlantic, funds that I know they will put to very good use!

I really appreciate everyone's support and encouragement. It was so much fun to get on Facebook after the race and read all the comments! Thank you again!

CROWDRISING SINCE: Jul 17, 2013
Stuff About Me:

To "celebrate" (?) turning 40 this year, I decided to run my first full marathon at the Baltimore Running Festival in October. And to give myself a little extra motivation, I wanted to use the opportunity to run for a good cause. 

If you know me in person or online, you know that I'm SUPER-passionate about animal welfare and rescue -- I volunteer, foster animals, make a general pest of myself urging people to support various causes, and of course have pets of my own. My first love, though, is horses, and the sport of eventing. (Which has an awful lot in common with running marathons, now that I think about it!) 

I thought it only appropriate to run the marathon in support of the ultra-athletes of the equine world -- Thoroughbreds. So I'm running to support CANTER Mid Atlantic, a non-profit that helps transition ex-racehorses to new careers as sport horses. 

I'm a proud owner of an ex-racer myself -- the horse in my profile photo is Chief (JC name Chief's Ahead, by Snow Chief, out of Clearly Ahead), who ran 25 times and won exactly once. :) Despite being a mediocre racehorse, he's been an amazingly fun horse to ride and learn on (he was my first full TB), and although he's semi-retired now at 21 years of age, he still loves to show off his fancy trot or go out for a good gallop.

Chief even has a bit of a Baltimore connection -- his sire, Snow Chief, won the Preakness in 1986. 

If you've ever wanted to support my kitty-rescue efforts, or if you just want to give me a virtual boost to get through those 26.2 hilly miles through Baltimore, I hope you'll consider making a (tax-deductible!) contribution to this hard-working organization. Thanks, from me and the critters!
