Pemberton


I’m off to a slow start this week, but here we are.

I’ll kick it off with a shot of the Pemberton Mill I took this summer on a Historic Mills Photo Walk. I lived the angle, but I wasn’t thrilled with the cloud pattern initially. But it grew on me. So it is here. Hope you like it.

On another note, I am going into full beg mode. But for a good cause.

On October 27, 2013 I will be running the Marine Corps Marathon. It marks a comeback for me, since injuries have kept me away from marathoning for over 18 months! I may be a little older and a little slower, but I am back, and I am thrilled!

I am also thrilled to be running the race in support of Team Chris, as I have three times before.Team Chris was founded by my good friends, Tim and Janet Scherer of Northport, NY in honor of their son who was killed in action Iraq in 2007. The mission of Team Chris is simple and straightforward, “Honor the Fallen, Support the Troops.”

Since its inception, Team Chris has honored that mission by providing material support to active duty soldiers in the combat theater and helping to fund other like-minded organizations.

This year, the fundraising efforts of Team Chris’ Marine Corps Marathon participants will go towards the training and placement of a service dog through America’s Vet Dogs (www.vetdogs.org). With the cost of training one service dog falling between $35,000 and $45,000, it is an ambitious goal. And with your help, it is achievable.

Please help me meet my personal fundraising goal of $2000.
