THE STORY:

After a business trip overseas in 2008, I came home with a different attitude about the environment.  I decided to change the way I was living and go green.

I sold my condo and moved into the heart of Boston. 
Got rid of my car and traded it in for a Dahon folding bicycle. 
Stopped power boating and learned to sail. 
Got a Kindle and stopped buying paper books. 
Got Poland Springs cooler delivery and SodaStream and stopped using so many plastic bottles. 
Got an iPad and the uPad app and got rid of all paper in my office and home for note taking etc.
Changed all the lightbulbs. 
Started carrying my own bags everywhere. 
Started recycling everything. 
Started buying local produce whenver possible. 

After living almost 3 years this way, I decided it was time to do something big again. 

A friend said, "Hey let's run the New York City Marathon for charity."  I've never run a marathon and I'm not a runner.  After finding Team Nature Conservancy, that made my decision.

It's been a long and sometimes painful road training for this marathon. In the final weeks I'm feeling great and am excited to go the distance, 26.2 miles, for Mother Nature. 

Your support would mean a lot to me. To be a part, just click the Donate button.

Thank you so much,

Mary
