Hey, my name is Axel and I'm a junior at Harvard College and an avid runner. I'm running the Boston Marathon in 2014 with the Harvard College Marathon Challenge, and raising a bunch of money to support PBHA, a Harvard service-based organization.
I've been a runner since I was 12, running cross country in my hometown of Decorah, Iowa all through high school. I grew to love running as a way to get out and experience nature through the some 14 miles of winding single track forest and prarie trails in my town. I also really loved the communal aspects of running with a team in cross country (as anyone who has run cross country would understand).
Coming to Harvard, I really wanted to continue these passions of experiencing the world and connecting with a community, so I was excited to join the Harvard College Marathon Challenge. With the HCMC, I've seen a lot of the Boston area and had quite a few conversations philosophical and practical (haha).
I'm really excited for this chance to be a representative of the HCMC, give back to the community, and support a renowned Harvard charity organization such as PBHA. I hope you'll support me in my venture!
