EVENT: 2015 Boston Marathon
EVENT DATE: Apr 20, 2015
Boston is the only major that I haven't run. It was always going to be the hardest and the most meaningful but that became reality in 2010 when I got seriously unwell. With the help and support of my family and friends I have gradually been able to get back into some running. I'm not sure that I can run the whole way, especially up the famous Heartbreak Hill, but I'm going to give it my best shot. The thought of crossing the finishing line and being cheered on by my family and Coach Don keeps me going! If I can finish in under 5 hours I'll be ecstatic!!
