Well, by now you all know that aliens have invaded my body and are making me run the Boston Marathon. 🙂 Ok, ok, I signed up for this myself – I just couldn’t resist being an official member of the Running for Rare Diseases Marathon Team! The team has had my heart and soul for years, and now it has my (aching, out of shape) body, too! What it also now has is me writing more blogs on http://running4rare.org than here (Like the blog about my Snow Run). So I am hoping you will all go to the site and sign up for the e-mail alerts so you can read posts from me and other runners, as well as posts from our patient partners, as we all make our way through this marathon training season. It would also be great if you could…

“In the last few years we’ve become known for our five- to seven-course small-plate chef’s tastings as well as our miniature passed hors d’oeuvres… fully personalized mini-boxes fit in the palm of your hand. They include everything from French fry boxes, to lobster roll boxes, to take-out boxes and burger boxes and more. Since we design, print, cut and mold all the boxes ourselves they can be entirely personalized to the client and the evening.” – Chef Paul Spillane, Ne Me Quitte Pas Catering
