This one is PERSONAL

I will get into the fun stuff coming up in a moment….

This is what appeared in my column today

The National Breast and Ovarian Cancer Coalition’s "Walk for Her" will host it’s first 5K run and 3K walk at Quiet  Waters Park in Annapolis this Sunday at 8a.m.

For more information, call Nikki Karl at 443-822-5125 or e-mail her at

This is near and dear to me/Socially Speaking’s heart because my mom, my hero and the original "Liz Smith of Baltimore,"–Sylvia Badger of News American and Sun fame–was diagnosed this summer with ovarian cancer.

So get out there, burn some calories before the Ravens game. Look for me to throw all my energies into this in the future too.
