I've always enjoyed running and have recently started to increase my mileage along with my passion for running. Last January I completed my first half marathon with one of my best friends, Caitlin, who has been my running partner for several races now. After finishing the half, we joked about running in the Boston Marathon next year, well the jokes on us now. On April 16, 2012 we'll be running in the Boston Marathon as part of the Mass General Hospital for Children Team. I can't think of a better reason to run 26.2 miles then to help support pediatric cancer and let kids be kids again!
Please help support me in reaching my fundraising goal, no donation is too small! Every little bit helps. If you would prefer to make an offline donation, checks can be made out to: Mass General Hospital and sent to me (please contact me for the address).
I hope to see some of your smiling faces along the race route cheering and offering support to myself and all the other runners along the way! I'll be sure to keep you all updated on how my training is coming along.
Thank you in advance for your support and confidence in me and The Mass General Hospital for Children.
