Hello everyone,

In 4 days, I will be running the Baltimore Marathon! All I can say is , THANK YOU! I have exceeded my goal of raising money for the Homecoming Project, and it is all because of you! A total of $2,429 has been raised through this fundraiser!!! $1,429 was raised through this fundraising page, and a direct donation to the Homecoming Project of $1,000 was made in the fundraisers name. Your unwavering support will save lives, reunite women with their families and children, and will provide women with a safe home to start their recovery journey. In 2015, I walked through the doors of the Homecoming Project for the first time, never in my life could I have imagined what that program has done for me and my friends. It is an honor to run the Baltimore Marathon in 4 days in support of Homecoming! I will send updates from race day! Thank you for your love and support as I run strides towards another goal!

Hello all!

First and foremost, thank you all SO much for the support as I embark on this new journey! I have attached a map of the marathon course. It should be a hilly, but absolutely beautiful tour of Charm City. I believe the first leg of the race goes right through the Maryland Zoo and will have a cheering section of penguins rooting us on!

I have been training by running, and doing yoga on my off days when I can, at least twice a week. There are officially 18 days until the big race, I'm definitely feeling nervous but I'm also trusting that my training and mental will to succeed will power me through! Your support means the world to me, and when I get tired I will remember all of the support and well wishes!

Hi everyone! There are officially 80 days until the big race! How about the beautiful weather recently, it has been perfect for our training runs! While I have been training to lower my mile times, Meg (who is MUCH faster than me!) has been working on maintaining her pace so that we can keep up with each other... we make a great team! Thank you all for your support and we can't wait for the big race! - Meg & Myra
