Today I get to speak to young marathon runners!
April 03, 2017

Who knew I would become the kind of person with enough experience in marathon running that I would be asked to speak with budding marathoners!  See more

BENEFITING: NEWTON SCHOOLS FOUNDATION INC

EVENT DATE: Apr 17, 2017

Anna Ford

THE STORY:

What you may not know is that I am from Newton (I grew up and attended school here), have three children at the Cabot School and myself working at NNHS that we are a family that thinks pretty highly of what the Newton Public Schools has done for us and the community over the years. 
While I'm not a veteran runner, rather I picked up the sport when I returned home to the United States nearly 5 years ago, I have been accomplished enough in the sport to time qualify twice for the Boston Marathon and have run in 2013, 2014, 2016 and this coming April. From experience I can tell you that there is no better feeling than running up Commonwealth Avenue to the spot my family has stood at for 37 years and see my neighbors, my parents and my children who have the absolute biggest grins on their faces! 

Cross the Finish Line with me!

This portion has been closed out! Time to go to the printers and make our shirts.
