THE STORY:

My life has been heavily impacted by my time as a runner and more importantly the successes and failures in my quest to qualify and run the Boston Marathon. In the fall of 2014 I toed the line for the Erie Marathon in Pennsylvania. The flattest and fastest course in the country, it was my 4th marathon and my 3rd of that summer. My first in May (the Vermont City Marathon, which I've now run 3x) I dropped 55 minutes off my marathon time. The second of the summer result in a DNR due to an ankle sprain. In Erie I ran fast. I finished with a 3:03.53 marathon time and had broken the 3:05 qualifying time for Boston. However I would later find out that my time wasn't fast enough due to the number of applicants to Boston. This September I plan to rectify my near misses and successes and failures by running 26.2 on the Charles River, my training grounds for years of running. All funds raised go to the Race Cancer Foundation, a organization that organizes running events to promote health and wellness in the community, reducing the risk of cancer while raising funds and awareness for organizations dedicated to fighting cancer. I'll do my best to keep everyone updated on the progress of training and this goal of qualifying once again to run my hometown marathon. Best, Max Baird
