THE STORY:

On April 21, 2014 I will be racing the Boston Marathon. After winning the Men's Visually Impaired Division in 2012 and 2013, I am excited to return to defend my title. I am also excited to return to a city and a race, that over the last two years I have grown to love. 

We all remember the tragic events that unfolded at last year's race, but we can’t let the actions of two overshadow the actions of many. In 2013, over twenty-six thousand runners entered the Boston Marathon. Whether they were racing for world records, personal bests, or charities, twenty-six thousand athletes crossed the starting line in  Hopkinton.  Twenty-six thousand athletes, all embodying the spirit of the marathon, showcased all that was and is great in the world on Marathon Monday, 2013. 

This year I will be racing once again, as a member of Team With A Vision. For the last 21 years, TWAV has joined blind and sighted runners race at Boston to help raise funds for the Massachusetts Association for the Blind and Visually Impaired. Funds raised support MABVI's statewide network of vision rehabilitation services, which include 3 low vision clinics, 33 low vision support groups, and 300 volunteers matched 1:1 with blind individuals.
