Shannon Massey is a Vice President at Natixis Global Asset Management, responsible for Sales Training and Execution, and one of four runners on Team St. Francis House. She has completed four marathons since 2005, yet if someone compliments her on that achievement, she is quick to say that running 26.2 miles is the least she can do to help other people... overcome difficult obstacles. “I’m grateful that I can run,” she explains. “And I’m running so that others can get the help they need … whether that’s a meal, a change of clothes, or a fresh start in life.” As a kid, Shannon ran with her dad, sister, and their dog. “It was a good time to catch up with each other,” she recalls. Several years later, Shannon ran the Marine Corps. Marathon and “enjoyed the fact that my body could accomplish the run.” Shannon looks forward to running her first Boston Marathon in April. “I believe in the power of positive thinking,” she says. “That and ice baths.” To support Shannon’s efforts, visit www.stfrancishouse.org/marathon2012.
