This is her 6th marathon after an oath to herself that she'd run 5 before the age of 30th. She is not only running for the sheer thrill of it, but also to raise money and awareness for the Boys and Girls Club of Dorchester. Their mission is "To inspire and enable all young people, from diverse circumstances, to realize their full potential by providing opportunities for personal growth to become contributing, caring and responsible members of the community." Wendy raised over $5,000 for them this year!
Wendy lives 1.5 blocks away from me. I am really sad to move, because, really, when else can you live within walking distance of your best friend? She started a photography career last year and has built quite a portfolio. Sometimes she makes me pose for her, but only because I'll do whatever she says (her: "go stand under that sign and pretend you're crying" me: "ok"). If there are any Boston mom's reading, you should check out her Mother's Day Special Package. If she can make a pregnant woman look good, imagine what she can do for your rug rats!
