I'm doing it again! 2018 Boston Marathon here i come! Running for my charity again, IMPACT Melanoma (formerly the Melanoma Foundation of New England) because of all the great work they do. As many of you know, right after my son was born in 2011, my doctor found a mole that didn't look quite right. Turns out it was pre-melanoma that i had to have removed with two procedures. It was found in time, and for that i am forever grateful. Now I go once a year for yearly skin checks, and I am very diligent about sun protection for myself and my children!
Help support me as I run the Boston Marathon for a 2nd time for this amazing charity!
