THE STORY:

On April 15, 2013, shortly after 10:40am, I crossed the Boston Marathon Start Line, my first marathon ever. I crossed the Finish Line on April 27, 2013, around 4pm; 12 days, 5 hours and 15 minutes as my unofficial time.

As many of you know, I was stopped on April 15th around 3pm due to the horrific events that occurred at the Finish Line on Boylston St. I was safe at mile 20, but had no clue about my parents, close friends, my colleagues who were running as well as those who supported us all throughout training, waiting for us on the other side of the Finish Line. Within an hour of being stopped, I was fortunate to find that my loved ones at the Finish Line were physically safe and by the end of the day, all of my colleagues were accounted for.

The Boston Athletic Association determined that runners in my situation get a "re-do" for the 2014 Boston Marathon. In this unique situation, I am not required to fundraise for 2014. I, however, consider myself a charity runner and would not feel comfortable not fundraising for a charity on my journey to cross the Finish Line on Boylston Street on April 21, 2014.

The Humane Society for Greater Nashua (HSFN) gives animals who have been surrendered or found fending for themselves a re-do at life with a loving family. On June 1, 2005, I adopted Lexie, a feisty 3.5 year old cocker spaniel, from HSFN. Lexie has made my life more enjoyable and rewarding. And there really is nothing better than being greeted at the door by a cold nose and Lexie's signature happy hops, even at just shy of her 12th birthday. On April 15th and the following days, weeks, and months, having her has comforted me when I am having a moment.

Over years, Lexie and I have made trips back to visit and bring in some HSFN’s wish list items to help those animals waiting for their forever home. I am hoping you will support me crossing the Finish Line in 2014 by supporting HSFN with a donation. Even the smallest contribution will help make a difference in the lives of these animals.
