EVENT: 2013 Boston Marathon
EVENT DATE: Apr 15, 2013
It's been my goal since the days of me struggling through 3 mile runs during sophomore year of high school track to one day run a marathon. A year ago, after running the last 9 miles with my friend, I became extra motivated to make that goal become a reality. I figured doing it my senior year of college, when the workload from school is at it's lowest and I have the most free time to dedicate to training, would be the perfect opportunity.
I know donating money just so some guy can run a marathon for himself might seem like a waste, but think about it in 2 ways:
a.) the money will be going to fund research at the Tufts Friedman School of Nutrition and Science Policy
b.) you're actually helping me pursue my dream and it would mean the world to me for you to support me in that.
Hopefully you've stopped reading by now but if you are, I suppose I'll share with you reason #3 why you should help me out:
I sort of made a promise to myself that if I couldn't dedicate myself to training for a marathon and raising all the money needed, I could never commit myself to a relationship. So if the first two reasons weren't enough...do it so I don't have to be single for the rest of my life!
Thanks for taking the time to come to this page and I truly appreciate all the help you've given to me.
