THE STORY:

Hi everyone, my name is Mark Jahnke and I am a senior studying Near Eastern Languages and Civilizations at Harvard College.  I am currently training to run in the 2013 Boston Marathon to benefit the Phillips Brooks House Association here at Harvard.  PBHA is a great student-run service organization that works around the Boston area on a lot of different community projects.  You can find out more at http://pbha.org/about/ !

The first marathon that I ever heard about was the Boston Marathon.  After celebrating my Intercollegiate Nationals win freshman year by watching, playing leap-frog with three enormous signs at several different mileposts to support some friends who were running my sophomore year, and following the times of the HCMC runners last year, I finally decided that it was time to push myself to go the distance, quite literally!  A marathon has been on my "bucket list" for some time now, and when I was offered a charity slot benefitting PBHA, I decided that this was it, that I had to make this happen.  And so far, it's been awesome.

I'm really looking forward to this spring of training, and would love to have your support along the way.  Stay tuned here and on Twitter for updates on training and fundraising!

 

Here is some information about the HCMC:

Harvard College Marathon Challenge (HCMC) is an organized group of Harvard students, employees, and alums that raises money, through running, to benefit the health, education, and welfare of Boston-area youth and families. Your donation to HCMC will benefit the Phillips Brooks House Association (PBHA) Summer Urban Program (SUP). PBHA SUP delivers educational and enrichment programming to underserved youth throughout the Greater Boston area. Since its inception in 2005-06, HCMC runners have raised over $250,000 for causes such as PBHA SUP. Thanks for your generosity, no matter how large or how small!
