THE STORY:

Dear Friends:

It is with with equal parts excitement and stubbornness that I'm happy to announce my 3rd attempt at the 26.2 miles into Copley Square this coming April 20th.  I'm not exactly sure how many folks out there have run 50 miles of the past two Boston Marathons and finished neither, but yes, I am one of them.  Consider me motivated.

This year, and for the final time in the foreseeable future, I am fundraising my way into the race, once again for Tenacity (www.tenacity.org), a terrific local non-profit that I have been affiliated with for 15+ years now.

I would be very happy to have your assistance in meeting my ambitious fundraising goal.  Thank you in advance for your generosity.

Last but not least, a few words about Tenacity below -- it's legitimately an incredible organization.

Happy Holidays, and look forward to seeing you soon.  Joe
