I'm running the 2019 Boston Marathon, on April 15, 2019 as part of Team Home Base. I can't believe I am actually doing this! OMG!!!
My name is Mistress Carrie, and I'm the Mid-Day host and Assistant Program Director for 107.3 WAAF Boston, the ONLY station that REALLY rocks! I'm about to celebrate my 21 year anniversary on the air here in Boston this April. I'm a skydiver, motorcycle rider, music lover, pug owner, military supporter, and all around risk taker.
This has been on my 'bucket list' for as long as I can remember, and having completed the Tough Ruck 4 times, I know with training and hard work, I can run the marathon! My personal ties to Mass General, and to Home Base run DEEP, and that is exactly what I will be thinking about along the route. I'm running in honor of my Great Grandfather, my Grandfather, my Uncle Froggy, and anyone who has ever worn the uniform in service to this country, ESPECIALLY "My Guys" from 'Boston to Baghdad' and 'AAF to Afghanistan', my 2 trips overseas, being embedded with local troops in Iraq & Afghanistan. You had my back there, I have your back here at home. Thank you all for your service, and I'll see you at the finish line!
Please help me reach my fundraising goal by making a donation, and by sharing this page. Thank you!
