EVENT DATE: Apr 15, 2013
Hello Family and Friends!
As some of you know, since this past September I have been training for the Boston Marathon! I never would have made it as far as I have without the support of the Tufts Marathon Team.
I was recently looking through my old college applications, as my younger brother is applying to Tufts this year. In one of my essays for Tufts, the prompt was to write about a movie that you had recently seen that had inspired you. I had just watched "The Bucket List," so I decided to write my own. One of the things on there that I wanted to complete was to run a marathon. Now, with the support of Tufts and all of you, I will be able (fingers crossed) to achieve this goal in my senior year!
Thanks to everyone who has supported me through the pursuit of finishing my first marathon! I will be following the footsteps of my wonderful parents who are both marathon finishers--if they can do it so can I!
