Susan Tattan Greene
I have been a recreational runner for most of my life. In fact, running has always been my preferred form of exercise. Over the past three years, however, running has become a much more important part of my daily life. When I turned fifty, I began to realize that if I was going to be strong and healthy, I needed to make some permanent lifestyle changes that would positively impact my health and well being. I have since lost over fifty pounds, become an ACE certified Personal Trainer and at age fifty three, I finally ran and finished my first marathon.
Running the Boston Marathon is every runners' dream and this year I have the opportunity to fufill my own dream of running Boston. I am particularly excited and honored to be running the 2018 race as part of Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital's Race for Rehab Team. I will run the marathon in honor of a dear family friend who was a patient at Spaulding following a tragic accident in 2015. My friend suffered a traumatic brain injury which left him in a coma for two weeks. When he awoke, his cognitive function was vastly diminished and he had lost his sense of smell. The rehabilitation and therapy that he received at Spaulding Hospital helped him regain his health. After a long and difficult road, he is back at work and living a full life with his daughter in New Hampshire.
My friend discovered the depth of his strength and determination through his journey of recovery at Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital. It is my hope that in running the Boston Marathon as a member of the Race for Rehab Team, I will be able to use my own strength and determination to help future Spaulding patients on their own roads to recovery.
Please kindly consider making a donation to this great cause so that together we can help Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital continue to make a difference in people lives.
