Jennifer Pelletier's Fundraiser:

TCM Runs For Boston

THE STORY:

I began running in 2006 after graduating from college and finding it much more difficult to find a pool where I could swim. Having never been a runner nor enjoyed running, it took me 9 months to build up to running 3 miles. I didn't get hooked until I started running longer distances. I loved the meditative nature of long runs; and the endorphin release isn't bad, either. I ran my first marathon in 2010, and have struggled with injuries (shin splints) on and off since then.

Earlier this year I was thinking of training for another distance event, and the events at the Boston Marathon spurred me to action. I am running the Twin Cities Marathon this October to support the victims of the bombings and young girls who will be part of the next generation of runners (see my other fundraiser page for Girls on the Run). 

The human body is incredibly strong and also incredibly fragile. Keeping this in mind as I train helps me respect my body and its needs, while also training it to prepare for 26.2 miles. Please support me in this journey by donating to those affected by the bombings in Boston. May their injured bodies one day be strong again.
