I am incredibly honored and grateful to be an athlete on the historical Tufts Marathon Team this year. It has been a long mental and physical journey over the last 4+ years and I will be running the Boston Marathon for the first time ever. Words can not express the positive emotion and empowerment I feel every day as I train. I am running to support nutrition, medical, and fitness programs at Tufts University, including research on childhood obesity at the Friedman School of Nutrition Science and Policy. I am also running to prove to myself and others that anything is possible, at any age, no matter what you’ve been through...if you believe it, you can achieve it. I am running to show my daughter that believing in yourself, loving with every fiber of your being, doing the right thing always, always remembering to smile, and never giving up no matter how hard or long the road, MATTERS. Thank you for supporting the Tufts Marathon Team this year, as I thank Tufts for the opportunity to show my little girl and others that YOU CAN DO IT, WE ALL CAN!
With Infinite Love and Gratitude,
