After years of taking on and conquering numerous challenges through my life, I have decided to take on, what I consider to be, one of the most mentally and physically demanding challenges that I am aware of .... The Boston Marathon.
I will be proud to be running this marathon with a group of people working to raise money for the Joslin Diabetic Center in Boston. This place has done amazing things for my best friend and soooo many others. Now I am given the opportunity to do amazing things for them.
I am looking forward to the process as a whole - the training and the running, but mostly I am looking forward to seeing the finish line under my feet....
