About Me

My name is Tracy Shouldice, and as you might gather from the name of this blog, I’m an runner.  I like to run for a cause:  since 2012, I estimate that between me and running teammates that I’ve worked with, we’ve raised over $120,000 for people who need a little help.

I hope you enjoy the posts I’ve placed here – maybe they will inspire you to channel your passion, into something bigger.

  1. Hello Tracy,

    What an inspiring blog you have here!

    I am a distant cousin of Bonnie and would like to contact her regarding her family history. This is a huge opportunity for us to connect as I been working on our genealogy for over 20 years!

  2. Hello Tracy,

    Thank you for answering my message. I apologize for contacting you through this format! I appreciate very much that you responded. I’ll explain.

    Here is a letter I drafted for Bonnie:

    I am the historian for my McDougald family and working on several branches including yours. I am super excited to be in contact with you as we share a family line that goes back to the Isle of Islay in Scotland and includes folks that were survivors of the R. M. S. Titanic disaster!

    I am your third cousin through your father Raymond Gordon Peebles. Your great-grandmother Flora (McDougald) Simpson was brother to my great-grandfather Alexander McDougald. Here is the family breakdown:

    [YOU] Bonnie Peebles

    (Father of Bonnie Peebles)

    Flora McDougald (1860 – 1921)
    (Mother of Myrtle Alberta Simpson)
    Duncan McDougald (1824 – 1905) ———- { our shared great-great-grandfather }
    (Father of Flora McDougald)

  3. Hi, Tracy! Is there anyway you can set my messages to you as private? As I was so excited to contact you, I sent you my personal information, without thinking about it. I appreciate it and hope you and Bonnie are doing well!
