My name is Mackenzie and I am a senior at Tufts majoring in International Relations and Political Science. I've been waiting 3 1/2 years to run in the Boston Marathon, and am so pumped to be doing it this year!! I've wanted to do another marathon since I ran the 2009 LA Marathon, and am excited to tackle Heartbreak Hill!
While biding my time for the chance to run in THE Boston Marathon, I've been sailing with the Tufts Sailing team, hiked up a few mountains in France during my junior semester abroad, and not freezing in the New England winters! I'll be working hard in my last semester to balance classes, sailing, and marathon training, but this is my motivation to wake up before the sun every Wednesday and Sunday for the long runs.
Your donation makes getting out of bed that much sweeter! I'm planning on donating $0.25 to myself for every mile I run as part of training for the 2013 Boston Marathon. Match me or do what you want...I appreciate you either way!
