Nature fills me with wonder. And that is what is inspiring me to run the Boston Marathon.
Have you ever witnessed an Adirondack sunrise? Or experienced the serenity of a placid lake in the early morning from a canoe? These are the experiences that have changed my life and made me who I am. So, I'm excited to join Team Nature and combine the two things I love best: running, and working to protect great natural places.
I was lucky enough to grow up in a small town surrounded by forests and lakes. So many of my favorite childhood memories are of camping, hiking and canoeing around the Adirondacks. I've experienced firsthand the benefits of conserving lands in their wild state for people to enjoy. Now that I have children, some of my favorite moments have been sharing nature's wonders with them. I've grown more passionate about saving some of the world's last great places, and providing such beautiful experiences for future generations.
I hope you'll join me in supporting The Nature Conservancy's good works in Massachusetts, Nevada, New York and around the world by making a donation. Just click the DONATE button above.
