Dear Most Amazingly Wonderfu…
Dear Most Amazingly Wonderful Supporters,

I want to say a HUGE thank you to every single one of you. Your support - whether it was emotional, encouraging words, congratulatory praise, running with me, bringing me vaseline while I was running (yes that did happen!), standing in the rain to cheer me on…it all contributed to an amazing marathon for me. It was tough; It was hard; but it was beyond rewarding.

When I got to mile 20, just before the last of the hills on heart break hill, I was met with encouragment and cheers from a dozen or so Codman students, teachers and administrators. They got me up the rest of that hill and ignited a fire under me to finish. And finish strong.

I finished the marathon in 4:12:13. I had so much fun stopping and talking along the way. And for the most part, I really enjoyed myself. Highlights of the day for me include: hearing the gun go off in Hopkinton at the start, reaching Framingham and hearing Born in the USA blasting over the speakers, seeing my family in Wellesley and seeing so many friends along the way, reaching the top of Heart Break Hill and at mile 22 knowing that I would definately finish, reaching the Citgo sign with one more mile to go (while Eye of the Tiger was playing), turning up Hereford and completely choking up and then running as fast I could down Boylston Street to the Finish. The runners were amazing and inspriring. Everyone had a story. Everyone was out there for a reason. I saw many runners with disabilities and I was empowered and in awe of their resiliency and determination. The volunteers who helped run the marathon from start to finish were equally amazing. I will never forget the day.

Thank you all for being so incredibly generous. I was overwhelmed by how generous you all were. I raised close to $13,000 for Codman's Wellness Program. I can't thank you all enough. It is a wonderful gift to give them.

Thank you all again for supporting me and helping me do something I have always wanted to do. Running this year was humbling, rewarding, challenging and amazing. And I can't thank you enough for helping me get there.

With love and appreciation,
Lisa
