This April, I'll be toeing the line in Hopkinton, MA and running 26.2 miles all the way back to Boston! As many of you who know me will attest, I love to run - all seasons, all distances, and with all kinds of people. But this race is extra special, as I'm running for Boston Medical Center. As an employee at BMC, I'm inspired every single day by the amazing work that BMC does for the patients, families, and communities in Boston. The only thing more exciting than running the marathon is running the marathon knowing that I'm running for an exceptional organizaiton. Thanks for your support!
