Happy 4th of July!!

Fireworks and American flag

 

It’s kind of gray and damp in NYC, but I can still smell the charcoal from those who have still decided to fire up the grill.  My buddies are in Maine where I should be, but besides having to do A LOT of work and getting hit with a ’bout of strep throat I’m pretty much dead in the water for a long weekend of celebration.  BOOOOO!  I’ll miss the fun but am hopeful that what I put in today will pay off tomorrow.

 

FIFA – Brazil

Run for the Congo

So I did this run/walk on Saturday September 24th. It was a run for women in the Congo who face poverty, sexual abuse, hunger and lack of education.  The event is supported by Women for Women International. It was great to run for this! 

I have been donating to this charity for years but finally joined the run walk and raised $300. My company matched some. I wish I could have raised more!  I thank all my family and friends who supporte me in this!  It was great to run for a cause, something every woman (and man) should do once. I encourage you all to try it.

Much love,
