This Sunday I'll be competing in the New York Road Runners New York Colon Cancer Challenge. This is a first for me (although I did run in the corporate challenge about 200 years ago), I've never really been one to do the "organized race thing"....I think that's going to change. The reason why I'm running is to help raise money for a Scholarship that I started (as a gift to my mother) a few years ago. The Scholarship is awarded every Spring at my Alma Mater (Mahopac High School). We try to give the award to students that are in good academic standing, and are planning to study music in college. It's a really cool thing because I get to say a few words of remembarance about my grandfather. Keeping his legacy alive is very important to me and my family. Also, since his wife (my grandmother) passed last week, this year is especially important. I'll be sure to share some photos next week.

Every once in a while, (even as a New Yorker) you have to stop and smell the roses. The other day I was sitting at my desk when a beam of light hit me out of the corner of my eye. As the sun set, I took a minute to turn my seat and look out the window. Thought I'd share the amazing view with you guys. Pretty cool right?
