EVENT DATE: Apr 18, 2016

Melinda LaConte

THE STORY:

The MEB Foundation emphasizes the imporatnce of Mainting Excellent Balance.  This has not always been easy for me, especailly after having kids.  I had these amzing little humans to care for 24/7 and I somehow slipped through the cracks.  They ate great and gots lots of exercise and tons of attention from me but I let myself go.  It wasn't until a year after my son was born that a friend encouraged me to run with her.  A quarter mile at a time with tons of encouragment I worked up to a 5K.  AMAZING!!!  Through running I have a whole new support system and family, a new found energy that radiates through my entire household, and the love of dreaming BIG!  My kids and husband are my biggest cheerleaders.  We set and achieve goals together - encouraging healthy habits, taking academics and learning seriously and having fun being fit.  We are all in this together!

My name is Melinda and I am so excited to be running the 2016 Boston Marathon for Team MEB.  Running Boston has been a dream of mine since I started running and I cannot wait to make the 26.2 journey from Hopkinton!  It is an honor to raise money for such a great cause.  I truly believe that it takes a village to raise a child and I feel that the MEB Foundation is doing great work amongst our youth and communities.

Please consider making a donation to further the MEB Foundation's goals to empower, educate and encouage health & fitness programs for our youth.
