The 119th Boston Marathon will be held on Monday, April 20, 2015 and I believe it will be one of the best days of my life. Am I brazen? No. More like fearless and plucky? One has to be to run 26.2 miles! I also consider myself blessed. I moved to Boston last year to achieve a life-long goal of living in my favorite city. I got a job at Tufts University School of Medicine and I love working for one of the best medical schools in the nation. When I wake up, I look forward to going to work. This means a lot. Many of you know I took up running awhile back, so I joined the Tufts Marathon Team. In hopes of representing Tufts in this year's Boston Marathon, I started training and going to practice runs (sometimes in 10 degree weather). Right before the holidays, I found out I made the cut! We are a strong team, and each one of has committed to support Tufts' Friedman School of Nutrition Science and Policy, specifically nutrition and childhood obesity research programs. This will be my first, full-marathon, and undeniably the most physically challenging undertaking I have attempted to date. I am asking my family, friends, and anyone who wants to be a part of this journey, to help me raise $5,000 for a school that is doing everything right. Nothing would make me happier than having my loved ones and fans contribute to the campaign in my honor. I can't wait to achieve this goal and make you all proud.
