Hello Friends and Family!
My journey to the Boston Marathon began in late 2012 as I began training for 2013's race with Charity Teams. Being a part of Charity Teams was incredible! The friends and memories I made will certainly last a lifetime. In addition to all the fun I had, I also made a MAJOR impact in my community by raising over $5,000.00 for Go Kids Boston! I am forever grateful for the outpouring of support that I received both before and after April's race. Due to the events that occurred on Marathon Monday last year, I was stopped from finishing the race just about 2 miles from the finish line. On that day I knew that I would train again and be a part of the Boston Marathon in 2014. The spirit of the city of Boston is inspiring and I am so proud to call this my home. I am confident that the 2014 Boston Marathon will be a joyful celebration of our city's strength and courage. I am honored to be a part of this event.
This year, I am so thrilled to be a part of the 2014 Boston Marathon as a member of Thorty's Team! Together my team and I are running in support of The Shawn Thornton Foundation. The mission of the Shawn Thornton Foundation is to improve the lives of those affected by cancer and Parkinson's disease. Please be a part of this amazing journey with me as I run 26.2 miles and CROSS THE FINISH LINE of the worlds most celebrated road race!
