Before my painful and existentially significant 100-mile ultra marathon, there was the first mile. Running has been a story of mine since my chicken legs decided they wanted to cover some distance in an unmarked teenage world. It was, conversely, my first internship at a corporate wellness center as a hopeful college graduate that notably set a thesis in motion. For many of my clients, health was an aspiration and not a gift. An empowering movement for a young female to embark on, I then began to distance myself from an association of exercise and aesthetics and sprint toward a commitment to health.
Boston Medical Center (BMC) shares this lifelong commitment by providing patients with the exceptional care they deserve without exception and regardless of financial circumstance. This year, I join the 2016 BMC Marathon Team first as a teammate, but more importantly, as a fellow cheerleader in the celebration of life.
