Running to Work this Friday for Boston

Not only will I get in a long run this Friday morning, I'll be supporting everyone in Boston.  It's officially called Run to Work Day and it grabbed me when I heard about it.  

The tragedy in Boston really affected me last week.  Both as a runner and more personally:  I had family members who where at the finish line near where the bomb went off.  My cousin's daughter was at the exact site of the blast earlier in the afternoon and my other cousin's husband, a police officer was on the EMT.  

So this Friday, in support of all the people who were affected in Boston last week, I'm running to work and making a donation to Run to Work Day.  You won't be able to miss me in the streets of Toronto this Friday...I'll be in my Reggae Marathon 2012 T Shirt!  Will you join me this Friday?

Until next time...


I'm raising funds for the Heart & Stroke Foundation in 2013.  My goal is to raise $2,000 by December 31.  My planned races in 2013 include:

  1. The Sporting Life 10K, May 12
  2. The Toronto Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront 1/2 Marathon, October 20
  3. The Reggae Marathon, December 7.  
Please join me on Facebook at Run for Heart.
