I am running the Nike Women's Half Marathon next Sunday, April 28th in Washington, DC. In the wake of the tragic events that unfolded after the Boston Marathon, I've decided to turn this fun run into something more meaningful by running for Boston. Though I have moved to DC, I will always be a Bostonian at heart. Marathon Monday is one of my favorite days in my absolute favorite city. I spent Monday morning tracking some of my friends who were running, and remembering many years as a marathon spectator as both a kid and an adult. I am thankful that all of my friends and family are safe, but my heart goes out to those injured and killed as well as their families and loved ones. On Friday, Boston was turned upside down yet again, and I am so thankful for the bravery of all of the city's first responders. I am raising money for Mayor Menino and Governor Patrick's The One Fund. Tragedy struck Boston, but Boston is a strong city and it is my home.
