THE STORY:

I am so excited to be training for my first marathon!!  This is an adventure that I honestly never thought I would undertake; but part of the reason I have been moved to do this is the amazing organization -- Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital -- for which I have the honor of running.

I first became of aware of the great work at Spaulding when I worked for Partners Healthcare System, Spaulding's parent organization.  Spaulding provides cutting edge rehabilitation services to patients recovering from a wide variety of devastating injuries; in sum, it helps to make people whole again.  For anyone who has undergone any type of rehabilitation or journey back from illness or injury, you know it can be a painstaking process; one that requires dedication, methodical commitment, and endurance.  You have to embrace the pain of the process to come through better on the other side.  Marathon training is similar, but an important distinction is that it is my choice to do it.  I am keenly aware of what a luxury it is to voluntarily tax my body to reach my goal; and I'm glad that in the process of doing that, I can also raise money to support an organization like Spaulding that helps those who don't have the choice but to Find Their Strength to heal.

I am lucky to have wonderful family and friends supporting me in this journey, as well as fantastic running partners to make the training actually fun.  Thank you for any support you can give!

XO

Kate

Kate, Great job on all your training and your run in the Marathon! I hope you find comfort in knowing that all the miles you ran to raise money for Spaulding will help so many who were injured at the marathon. It was a great pleasure meeting you and your family along the way. Best wishes, Elysa 5 years ago
