With a group of 50 other dedicated runners who are raising money to advance the inspiring work of the Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary ("MEE"), we will be hitting the pavement of my favorite city with 36,000 runners from around world, completing 26.2 miles together. Since the teams’ inception in 2006, Team Eye and Ear has raised more than $3 million to support the hospital’s exceptional clinical care and groundbreaking research. Since the Marathon bombings in 2013, MEE has been taking part in revolutionary research to help the Marathon Bombing victims regain their hearing and lives.
Running the Boston Marathon has always been at the top of my list. Boston will be the third marathon that I will have undertaken in three years, a goal I set for myself in 2013. I expect to train hard and work to break 4:00 hours (completed NYC Marathon last fall in 4:01). Crossing the line on Boylston will be moving in many ways; remembering those who lost their lives two years ago, running for a remarkable hospital, and achieving a personal goal.
