I am excited to be running the Boston Marathon with Team BMC! I completed my first marathon at Walt Disney World in January 2013 and swore I would not do another. When I returned to the office, there was an email plea for team members...it was a sign that I would be running another marathon in the near future. I have committed to raising funds for a terrific organization that is at the heart of the community. Please consider giving whatever you can.
