THE STORY:

Why I'm Running:

I always found running to be very enjoyable and relaxing as well. It’s “me” time; the time and space I need to let go of any trivial troubles and coax out my most inner thoughts and feelings. I mull them over as the wind breezes past me, and I surprise myself with how much I still learn about myself. It’s a way to both lose myself and find myself at the same time. Though running has just been a sport or an outlet for me, I have never had the chance to turn my hobby into something more. There has always been a desire within me to use a talent of mine in order to do something meaningful, as personal gain and satisfaction only goes so deep. Being the runner that I am, I have always had the dream of running the Boston Marathon, and what better way to achieve this goal than to run for a charity.

I will be running with Team Eye & Ear from the Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary in Boston, one of the most respected hospitals in the nation for their specialized care and ranked #1 in the nation by U.S. News & World Report. Mass. Eye and Ear clinicians and scientists are driven by a mission to find cures for blindness, deafness and diseases of the head and neck. Each year almost 300,000 people - adults and children - from more than 80 countries seek care at Mass. Eye and Ear and more than 20,000 of them undergo life-changing surgery. The hospital is home to the world's largest vision and hearing research centers, offering hope and healing to patients everywhere through discovery and innovation. As a Harvard Medical School teaching hospital, Mass. Eye and Ear trains future medical leaders in ophthalmology and otolaryngology through their highly competitive residency and fellowship programs.

Though I won’t be able to run past the familiar landmark of the Mass. Eye and Ear Infirmary on my way into the city on the marathon route, I hope to keep it in my mind as I run for a cause so much larger than myself. Running with Team Eye and Ear is an honor in my first marathon, the one race I have always wanted to run, and in the city I have had the privilege to call home. With your help, I can reach my fundraising goal of $12,000!
