THE STORY:

2014 has been an interesting year for me. It marked my first Marathon, ever. But was also a year in which I lost two people I loved to cancer - My friend, Candice and my Aunt Margaret.

While I was training for the 2014 Boston Marathon, one of my nearest and dearest friends, Candice Costa, was diagnosed with Pancreatic Cancer and lost her battle with it after only 5 short weeks. I spent as much time as I possibly could with Candice, and as a result, became very familiar with Beth Israel during that time. The care she received was amazing.

Every time I visited, she would ask me how my training was going. Candice called me her Mini-Me, so I felt very proud providing her with updates. I always went right to the hospital after Saturday long runs and did one of my training Half Marathons in her hometown of New Bedford. She was a constant motivator both during my training and throughout the actual Marathon.

In 2014, I ran Boston to honor my grandmothers. But Candice was heavy on my mind during the marathon as she passed just three weeks prior to Marathon Monday. My aunt knew about Candice and would often ask about her. She was amazed at her strength. When my aunt's 11-year fight with breast cancer brought her to the hospital, I knew I had to run Boston again in 2015 to raise money for Cancer treatment and care. I can think of no better way to honor my Aunt Margaret and Candice this year than by running the 2015 Boston Marathon in their memory.
