EVENT: 2015 Boston Marathon
If you find yourself racing alongside Rachel Weeks on Marathon Monday, or if you see her run by you while spectating on Heartbreak Hill, you'll never know that she is legally blind and has a severe hearing impairment. Rachel, who has a condition called Usher Syndrome, which has slowly taken away two of her senses, has not let it slow her down one bit.
When she's not charging her way up Heartbreak Hill or training for her next Ironman trialthlon, Rachel keeps busy creating, organizing, mentoring, serving, and smiling. Her life is centered around faith, service, and connecting with others.
2015 will be Rachel's second year running the Boston Marathon, and she will once again be guided by her friend and 'hero', Brian Lane. Brian has run in over 50 races in 18 states. In addition to running, Brian loves cookies.
