EVENT: 2013 Boston Marathon
EVENT DATE: Apr 15, 2013
I'm very excited to be one of 100 runners selected to run the Boston Marathon as part of the Tufts team. I started running in 2009 to challenge myself and to cultivate a healthy lifestyle. I slowly progressed from running a couple miles to 5K's then 5-milers, 10K's, and half-marathons. I recently completed my first marathon back in Oct.'12.
It has always been a dream of mine to run Boston after serving as a volunteer and cheering the elite runners at the finish line for many years. The Tufts Marathon Team and I will be making the journey from Hopkinton to Boston to support nutrition, medical, and fitness programs at Tufts University, including research on childhood obesity at the Friedman School of Nutrition Science and Policy.
