Only 2 more weeks until the Baltimore Making Tracks for Celiacs 5K & 10K race and Gluten-Free Vendor Fair on Sunday, May 20th! Register by May 7th to be guaranteed a performance T-shirt and reduced registration fee. After May 7th, registration prices go up and no guarantee on a T-shirt (it will be first come first serve at the day of the race). You can register as an individual, join a team or just make donation. It's easy to set up and personalize your own fundraising team page. Team donations and pledges are what propel the Center for Celiac Research towards achieving its goals.

DON'T FORGET we have a new location this year: UMBC (University of Maryland Baltimore County), University Center building, 1000 Hilltop Circle, Baltimore, MD 21250. Click here to view the 5K and 10K course map. The 10K race will loop around UMBC campus twice. Water will be available at certain locations on the course. Also new this year is chipped timing.

Registration will begin at 8am, 5K and 10K races start at 9am, and the Gluten-Free Vendor Fair opens at 9am. Registration, the Vendor Fair and post-event activities will take place at the University Center, 3rd floor ballroom. There will be free parking in the Administration Garage and Stadium Lot. (Please see the UMBC website for campus maps.) For directions to UMBC, visit the Baltimore page on www.celiacwalk.org.

If you can't participate in the 5K or 10K race but still want to be a part of the event and support the Center, we now offer registration solely for the Gluten-Free Vendor Fair. And if you register before May 7th, you are guaranteed a performance T-shirt. Fees are $30 for ages 13 & up and $15 for under 13. There will be gluten-free refreshments available to sample and to purchase at the Vendor Fair. We already have 45 vendors signed up and more to come, including some new gluten-free companies!

Other amenities include a silent auction with items such as a Joe Flacco autographed football, restaurant gift cards, movie passes, gift baskets and much more. There will be children's activities, awards & metals for winning participants, and a raffle. Get a free raffle ticket for each $100 of fundraising (not including registration fee) received by May 20th; matching gifts double your fundraising!

To register for the 5K walk/run, 10K run or Gluten-Free Vendor Fair, visit www.celiacwalk.org. Register by May 7th (only 5 days left!) and you are guaranteed a performance T-shirt. Those that register after May 7th and on the day of the race are not guaranteed a T-shirt.

We'd love to see a bigger turnout this year so get everyone you know to come out and join us!! This event supports the Center for Celiac Research in a major way and we count on it for crucial research funds for the year.

I'm signed up! It will be my first 5K since before my daughter was born (she's 8 1/2) now. So excited for the race and the vendor fair.

    • Hello!  When I find myself up at odd hours, I put on this celiac disease Mozart for Meditation... https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B000VFQ58U/ref=mp_s_a_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1516086445&sr=8-1&pi=SX350_PI_PJPrime-Sash-Extra-Large-2017,TopLeft,0,0_AC_SX118_SY170_QL70&keywords=mozart+for+meditation+celiac disease And I get out my dot to dot book, like one of these for adults.... https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/s/ref=is_s_ss_i_0_5?k=dot+to+dot+books+for+adults&sprefix=dot+t&crid=2B42N4PRIT56H Sometimes I knit mindless objects such as hats, washcloths or socks.  Knitting has a soothing rhythm to it and is easy to learn... Or I read a book about knitting and life... https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/1603420622/ref=mp_s_a_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1516087016&sr=8-2&pi=AC_SX236_SY340_FMwebp_QL65&keywords=McPhee+knitting&dpPl=1&dpID=51fHYy2xXsL&ref=plSrch Or a knitting mystery.... https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B001LRLJUG/ref=mp_s_a_1_6?ie=UTF8&qid=1516087587&sr=8-6&pi=AC_SX236_SY340_FMwebp_QL65&keywords=knitting+mysteries&dpPl=1&dpID=51z43F8UuuL&ref=plSrch Knitting is really easy to learn.  I find it soothing to work with natural fibers, organic cotton for washcloths or luscious alpaca for socks...  But I find it inadvisable to shop online in the wee hours...  😸 I've got way too much yarn now...hee hee hee...  besides, the light from electronic devices keeps your brain awake longer.... Hope this helps.... Knitty Kitty  
    • My only symptom was slight nausea. Lasted 6 months before it started to only happen if I ate too much food in a sitting. I would eat simple, bland foods and eat 6 small meals instead of three big ones.
    • I've lost some of my sense of taste due most likely to zinc deficiency from not eating beef for a couple of years. Zinc supplement doesn't seem to help, but eating .5 to 1 lb of beef per day definitely does help. I noticed a positive change within days of eating beef. I don't know if your diet includes beef, but if it doesn't there's a reason for you.   Zinc and Geographic Tongue
    • I was in your same boat when I was diagnosed. Terribly fearful of cancer and all the damage I unknowingly had done. I don’t cheat, but I’m not as good as I need to be at restaurants (I only order off gluten-free menus but I don’t talk to managers like I should, etc) and I eat out once a week with never having symptoms. My main symptom is absolute, complete brain fog. I am truly not the person I used to be. I’ve always had anxiety, so that wasn’t any worse, but I hate to say this about myself but i got “dumb”. It was my first week in nursing school when I was diagnosed. What a great time, huh? I had to stay at school until midnight-2am 4 nights a week just to try to focus and control this brain fog. I used to be smart, quick witted, and very present in the moment. I know life changes, but my life is busy yet very peaceful and I struggle with this daily. I can’t comprehend medical concepts quickly like before and it’s very depressing. I also have a pretty good diet but have weighed 165 (I’m 5’4”) for three years with doing cardio, training for marathons,  etc..nothing gets this weight off (have had thyroid issues since age 7). Anyways. You are not alone. My doctor diagnosed me 5 years ago and told me to stay gluten free and I never saw him again! No follow-ups... I had no clue I had to! Anyways, I have an appointment upcoming as well.  Best of luck to you ❤️
