EVENT: 2013 Boston Marathon

EVENT DATE: Apr 15, 2013

THE STORY:

After I ran my first marathon, I thought about the Boston Marathon.  So, I created a “Complete the LA Marathon Challenge” at Cal State University, Northridge to encourage our staff, faculty, students and the community to improve their health and, for me to continue running; I ran a second marathon.  Training is really hard work, life and family consuming, and so my goal changed … I’d run one last marathon and get my daughter Mackenzie to run it with me.  So you see in Photo 1, we ran LA together 4 years ago, before she went off to college and my shirt says LOYS LAST MARATHON!  Mission accomplished!

Well, life is funny.  She went to TUFTS University and we read about the Tufts Marathon Team (TMT) which gave students and “others” an opportunity to fundraise money for Tufts’ fitness and nutrition programs by running … the Boston Marathon! We talked to TMT Coach Don Megerle and he said, it’s unlikely she’ll get to run until she’s a senior and even then it’s no guarantee she or you will make it … 4 years?!  So, I kept in shape through many CSUN staff/faculty wellness programs (Photos 2,3,4), running with my exercise physiology students … just in case. 

Dreams come true … I have the opportunity to run Boston with Mackenzie (she now being much faster).  I must raise $5,000 and this is my ask of support from all of you I’ve come to know, teach, and work with over the years. I donated $250. Please consider a contribution that your lifestyle will support.  I'll put in the miles with our CSUN Team in Training (Photo 5,6) for the Mar. 17 LA Marathon and just as 2 years ago I completed my last ascent of Mt. Whitney with Mackenzie (Photo 7), I am asking you to support my opportunity to do my truly LAST MARATHON, The Boston Marathon, with Macks … a quest years in the making!  I am most appreciative of your support!  Macks has a $1500 goal!  If you know Mackenzie, maybe give her a bit of support also!http://www.crowdrise.com/tuftsmarathon2013/fundraiser/mackenzie 

Trustees of Tufts College wrote - Each year, 100 runners make 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.

The Tufts Marathon Team (TMT) is the largest known collegiate marathon program in the United States, attracting runners from around the country.

During the 2012 marathon season, the team raised $565,290. Since its inception in 2003, the TMT has raised more than $3,572,629.
