BENEFITING: ROAD RUNNERS CLUB OF AMERICA
EVENT DATE: Apr 21, 2014
Running the Boston Marathon for the first time! I was inspired to finally run a marathon by the tragedy that took place at last year's marathon. In doing so I'll be raising money for a great cause! Proceeds go to fund running programs for younger runners to perpetuate this great sport - great for the mind, body, and soul. In case you are wondering who are the people standing next to me...on the left is Greg Meyer, the last American male to win the Boston marathon, and Bill Rogers who won the Boston marathon 4 times.
On a personal note - I am dedicating the effort to prepare and run this race to my my maternal grandparents. My grandfather died a number of years ago and my grandmother just passed away last August. Simply put - both were very special to me and played a significant role in my childhood.
