I'm running my first marathon, the New York City Marathon, in November. I love running and I love dogs and cats (of which I have way more than is socially acceptable in a one bedroom apartment), so I decided to combine the two to raise funds for my favorite rescue, which also happens to be the most awesome rescue in the world, Bobbi and the Strays. They are 100% no-kill and take in all animals regardless of age, breed or health, unlike some other better-known organizations, who I won't name (hint: google ASPCA and NSAL if you can't stand not knowing who I'm talking about). And there are three dogs and a kitty who I love very much that might be in bad situations or not alive right now if not for them (see photos). Plus, I'm scared to death to run a marathon, so I thought this would be a good distraction from the actual task at hand.
