Why I Run

and why it matters when I don't.

First of all, a shameless plea for support. I'm Running in the Pittsburgh Half Marathon this May 15, 2011. This is a big deal because I'm middle-aged, a relatively un-seasoned runner, I used to smoke, I'm creaky and going to pieces.

My goal is to finish, having run every step of the way. I'm running to support homeless animals in Western PA, and the support, care, love and second chance they can get from the Humane Society.

It would be so amazing if you would help support this. You can donate by clicking on the copious links sprinkled throughout the page, or on the image of my 2 little guys below. The Humane Society does great things. Please consider helping, even a little, if you can.

Thank you!
