My name is Suzanne Bracy and I am running the 2012 MDI Marathon as a fundraiser for the non-profit I work for and love, Harbor House Community Service Center. I am indebted to Harbor House for helping me out many years ago when I was a young, struggling mom of three kids. Youth baseball and soccer prices were tweaked so that my children could always participate and never be left out. In addition, Harbor House provided a before-school program so that I could work, and know my kids were in a safe and fun environment before school. I have always been grateful for this little community center that has a HUGE heart. Fast forward to February 2010: I was training for a marathon and my treadmill at home broke. I joined the Harbor House Fitness Center so I could still train when the roads were icy. As I was running on the treadmill, I remember thinking, "This would be a fun place to work!" As luck would have it (I love karma!) a part time position was posted for an Administrative Assistant. Out of 19 more qualified applicants, I got the job! What started as a part time position grew into a full time Health and Fitness Management position. Why is that a big deal, you might wonder? I used to be very heavy and very unfit. The MDI Marathon helped me transform my life, and now Harbor House has given me the opportunity to give back, and help people on their own fitness journeys. When I found out I could run the marathon I love to raise money for and celebrate the job that I love- what better combination? We at Harbor House like to think we offer a little something for everyone- a Children's Center, youth sports, a Fitness Center, a free "Underground" Youth Center, and After-School program, free Seated Senior Exercise program, fitness classes and much, much more. Help me reach my goal and cheer me on as I rock the "Team Harbor House" hot pink singlet at the MDI Marathon!!!
