Dear Friends and Family,
I am proud to announce that I will be running the Boston Marathon this spring as part of the Tufts Marathon Team! As a senior at Tufts University, I have grown tremendously as a runner in the past four years. My initial goals of three or four miles slowly grew, I began to participate regularly in local 5K’s, and last spring I challenged myself in a half marathon while studying abroad in Spain.
Training with the Tufts Marathon Team has been inspiring and motivating, and has provided me with a supportive community in what is often an independent sport. I am grateful to be one of 100 runners on the Team who 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. As a summer research assistant with the Friedman School, I am honored to support research and action for better public health.
Please support our runners for the 2013 marathon by making a gift online. If you prefer, you can mail in the pledge form to pay by check or credit card offline.
