Running to beat cancer


58831_3370916768264_467608112_nOn Sunday, November 15, I will follow in the footsteps of the New York Yankees as part of the seventh annual Damon Runyon 5K at Yankee Stadium – a unique fundraising run/walk that uses the Stadium as its course. I’ll get to explore the concourses and ramps, climb stairs between levels, and take my own victory laps around the warning track that circles the field.

100% of the money I raise will be used by the Damon Runyon Cancer Research Foundation to fund innovative research by today’s most brilliant young scientists, who are racing to find the causes and cures for all types of cancer.

Please make a donation that supports my run/walk.

You can choose the amount you want to give – all donations are gratefully received!

Thank you for your support.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Hot



Not the picture I wanted, it doesn’t really make me think of ‘hot’, but it’s all I could find, and it is fire, so it is HOT.


Weekly photo challenge: water


This is the ‘skate park’ at the local community park. Guess they forgot it rains in NY and didn’t put a drainage system in it.


Weekly Photo Challenge: Red


I have no idea what this was/is. I saw it down by One Police Plaza in New York. It was a bitter cold day and there was nothing else to do but walk around, take pictures and try not to freeze to death.


Weekly Photo Challenge: Wildlife



This picture was taken in Central Park, NYC. It was taken from a far distance and then cropped and enlarged which is why the quality if poor, but it is a coyote.

And this gorgeous creature was a few blocks from my house. I was driving to the train to go to work when I saw her on the side of the road.
