Hi Friends and Family!!
Hope you are off to a happy and healthy 2013!
As some of you know, I am training to run the Boston Marathon with the Tufts University Marathon Team on April 15th 2013. I am incredibly excited to be part of such an experience!
I am a senior at Tufts majoring in International Relations and Community Health. Over my past three years, I have become more and more interested in health and the benefits of exercise in my studies and other pursuits. Traveling to Guatemala with the health organization Timmy Global Health, joining the rock climbing team, studying problems and victories in human health, and now training for the Boston Marathon, my passions and studies are coming together!
In my marathon training, I am trying to raise $1,500 for the Tufts Friedman School of Nutrition which will go towards specialized programs in nutrition, physical activity, and medicine. I would appreciate any support you can offer!
I am planning on donating $0.25 to myself for every training mile I log for my Boston Marathon Fundraising Goal. Match me if you can!
I am so appreciative of your support and welcome any questions/words of wisdom/encouragement :)
Hope to see you in 2013...or maybe Hopkinton on April 15th!
