Kristen SAYS:
Good morning!! Marathon Mon…
Good morning!!

Marathon Monday is just one week away and I wanted to take a moment to say “thank you” again. I’ve always read that a great “Thank you” requires me to get personal.

My dad is 75 years old. The hardest working man I’ve ever known, retiring at 74 from a full time electrician job at Milton Hospital. He’s always been my rock. Truth be told, I was on the fence about pushing myself to do this. I LOVED running. What happened last year touched me on a level that I can’t easily explain. I would invest the time gladly, given the opportunity to run the 2014 Boston Marathon. But could I do this?

My dad told me something that will stick with me forever. “Kristen, the scariest things in life are those that are most worth it. This is scary, but it is most worth it. I know you can do it.”

I think Dad may dabble in fortune cookie writing, but the statement was strong. The most exciting things in life are also the most scariest to commit to.

So here I am, 6 months after this conversation. After all of the cold long runs this winter, the wine and pizza I deeply missed, I wouldn’t have it any other way. I have the best people surrounding me in the world (one being you), and am so overwhelmed by your generosity. (Cue the tears, but seriously, thank you.) Being able to raise over $6,700 for the Shamrock Foundation is one of my greatest achievements in life thus far.

I consider myself one of the luckiest girls in the world to be able to be involved in this epic day in Boston history. Here’s to 26.2!
