My name is Scott. I am from Flemington, New Jersey. I have lived in Baltimore, Las Vegas, New York City, and now Boston. And I am running the Boston Marathon for the first time in 2016. Here's a little bit more about me. I ran cross-country in high school, and enjoy running 5k's throughout the year, but the furthest I'd ever run was 5 miles up until I started training for the marathon. Thanks to the support and encouragement of my friends and teammates, I recently finished an 8 mile run. How long is the marathon again? 26.2? Oh boy...
One of the reasons I run is for my girlfriend Kara. She is not a runner. She does not understand the appeal of running, nor the need for 6 am wakeups on Saturday mornings. She did however make the picstitch in my profile picture. And she's always the first person to congratulate me at the finish line. Thank you, KLou!
The other reason I run is because I love the Boston Marathon and everything it stands for. My friend Barclay calls it the Super Bowl of running. It's cool to compete with the best in the world. But even more importantly, it's a chance for the city to come together and celebrate the achievements of all the participants, regardless of skill level, age, or anything else. I had a great time volunteering at the finish line last year, and am excited to be running this year.
See you on April 18th!
