So, Hi everyone. I finished…
So, Hi everyone.

I finished the 118th Boston Marathon, a race I started last year when I was unable to finish because of the catastrophic events that took place.

This year brought everyone back even stronger. For me, I wanted to make it even more special, by raising money for Joe Andruzzi. This became a reality with the donations you all gave in memory of your loved ones, or for those struggling with cancer.

The crowds and the atmosphere at the marathon were like nothing I've ever been a part of. We truly live in the best part of the country and the world. With every face I passed, as they yelled and cheered, and told me to keep on going, you could see in there eyes that they cared.

Believe me, when i didn't think I could take another step, (and that happened more than I would like to think), I was thinking of all of you, and picked up and kept going. You all made me stronger.

There is no way I can thank you all enough, but I am very proud to have run on your behalf, I'd do it again in a second.

Thanks again for supporting me & all you did,

Well, here we are, 5 days away from the big run.

Yet, now that I look back on it a little, the bigger win was the difference that all of you have made in someone's life, by caring enough to donate to a great cause.

I appreciate all of the support that you have given me, and for each of your generous donations.

There were certainly times when the thoughts of you were what kept me going.

So thank you again, HERE WE GO!!!!!!!

So, we were up to running about 35 miles a week, long run being somewhere between 16-18 miles.

A week ago, after running over the mountains in Derry,NH, I tore a calf muscle in my left leg.............ARrrrrrrghhhhhhh.

Self doubt, frustration, & disappointment all stared to get in my head.

I am now seeing 2 Physical therapists, a sports trainer, and a doctor. I have started on a strict regimen of swimming and therapy and I think this may be the best thing that has ever happened to me. Ultimately making me stronger to run boston this year.

Every time I start to hurt or get a little whiny, I think of you folks and the reason to run, and we push on. Your kindness has made a difference in many ways.

Thank you again for your support both for me and the joe andruzzi foundation, It really helps.

BOSTON STRONG,

Trish,

Thank you so much for your very generous donation. I really appreciate it. I know it will be put to very good use. Having heard personal stories, and even our own stories, the need is definitely there.
Every mile we run, every hill we climb will now be done for reason, because you cared.

I'll be proud to run on your behalf.

Thank you again so much,
JEFF
