THE STORY:

Hi all!

I say to myself almost everyday that I'm the luckiest person in the world.  I'm fortunate to have a wonderful husband, a loving family, a warm home and a comfortable life.  I have never known hunger.  A few years ago I ran a race in Franklin that "charged" participants non-perishable food items instead of an entrance fee. Until that point I didn't even know Franklin had a food pantry or a need for a food pantry.  The Franklin Food pantry is not even a mile from my home and yet I didn't even know people in my seemingly well-off town were frequenting this valuable community center.  Like many, I thought hunger didn't exist where I live.  If food instability exists in my town, imagine the problem in a city like Boston.  

I am running the 2013 Boston Marathon for The Greater Boston Food Bank because hunger is a problem we can do something about.  Here. Now.  The Greater Boston Food Bank helps families all over eastern Massachusetts.  Kids.  Moms and Dads.  Please consider helping by donating to this worthy cause.  I'm running to raise money and awareness for this charity that helps feed so many.  

This will be my third marathon, but it's been a while since my last and the going's been tough.  My best friend has been my treadmill as of late.  I hope you'll send me off well as I trek 26.2 miles in April.  Thank you very much.  

Brigid
