THE STORY:

Hello, (bonjour! le reste en Francais en bas de page)

I've always been a big believer that you should follow your dreams.  Whether you want to travel the world, write a book, climb mountains, acquire new languages or all of the above, we all have a bucket list.  I personally have one of my own of couse and on there is running the Boston Marathon.

As many of you know, I grew up in France and have now been living in the U.S. for ten years this year.  Boston is my second home and I wouldn't want to run my first marathon anywhere else.

I started my training back in the summer of 2015 when I could barely run five minutes without having to stop to catch my breath.  I pushed through it and ran a 5k by the end of the summer knowing it was just the beginning.  Since April 2016, I have had a personal coach who has been helping me take it to the next level.   I was able to run a 10k in May and a half marathon in October that I ran in 2'10"  Next, the marathon!

Luckily enough, the Metrowest YMCA has given me the opportunity to run next April while raising money for a great cause.    As many of you know, I've been volunteering for over a year wit Big Brother Big Sister and truly believe in today's youth.
All fundraising efforts go to support the MetroWest YMCA’s Annual Campaign which raises funds for financial assistance at the Y for children and families and programs such as LIVESTRONG at the YMCA® for cancer survivors.

I appreciate your support and as the months go by, I will keep you updated on my training via email/facebook posts.  Please feel free to share my story with your friends, family, co workers, neighbor, etc...

Boston 2017, here I come!!

Bonjour,

Je pense que c'est tellement important de suivre son rêve. Si vous voulez voyager dans le monde, écrire un livre, escalader des montagnes, acquérir de nouvelles langues ou tout ce qui précède, nous avons tous une liste. Personnellement, j'en ai une moi-meme bien sur et courir le marathon de Boston est en haut de la liste.

Comme beaucoup d'entre vous le savent, j'ai grandi en France et maintenant je vis aux États-Unis depuis dix ans. Boston est ma deuxième maison et je ne voudrais pas courir mon premier marathon nulle part ailleurs.

J'ai commencé ma formation en été 2015 quand je pouvais à peine courir cinq minutes sans devoir m'arrêter pour reprendre mon souffle. Je me suis pousse'  et j'ai couru 5km en fin d'été en sachant que c'était juste le début. Depuis Avril 2016, j'ai un entraîneur personnel qui m'aide a' m'amener au prochain niveau. J'ai couri 10km au mois de Mai et un demi-marathon en Octobre!

Au lieu de courir en moins de 3h05mins,j'ai l'opportunite' de courir pour le Metrowest YMCA, un program qui aide les jeunes avec des programs d'assistance financiere ainsi que des programmes comme LIVESTRONG pour les survivants du cancer.

Chaquesous compte et serait très apprécié ! Que ce soit $5, $20 ou plus, c'est non seulement un pas dans le bonne direction pour la realisation de mon reve , mais c'est aussi de l'argent recolte' pour une cause geniale.

Je vous remercie de votre soutien et quand les mois passent , je vous tiendrai au courant sur ​​mon entrainement via e-mail /facebook.

Merci d'avance et Boston2017, j'arrive!
