Growing up in a household of athletes, I always rebelled against my active parents by choosing to be obnoxiously un-active and lazy. It wasn't until senior year of high school that I gave running a chance, and after completing my first five mile race in Wellfleet, MA, I was hooked.
Thanks to my family, especially my mom, I am now an avid runner, and cannot imagine my life without the sport. After giving cross country a chance my sophomore year of college and realizing the competitive aspect wasn't for me, I discovered my passion for long distance running. I have completed 2 half marathons, but running a marathon has always been on my bucket list.
After the tragic events of last years Boston marathon, I knew that I wanted to join the Tufts Marathon Team and run the Boston Marathon this year to unite in solidarity with the rest of the runners to show Boston's strength.
My goal is to raise $1,500 for the race, which will go towards nutrition, medical, and fitness programs at the Tufts Friedman School of Nutrition. Help me reach my goal and to support these programs!
Thanks so much!
