EVENT: 2015 Boston Marathon
EVENT DATE: Apr 20, 2015
On April 20, I'll be running the 26.2 miles of the Boston Marathon to raise money for Tufts (see below)!
Running has been a HUGE part of my life -- from having fun in the West Side Relays in 4th grade, to racing the 800m in PJHS track, to living it up with Petaluma High XC, to taking things more seriously as a member of Boston University's Varisty XC/Indoor/Outdoor track teams, to expanding to longer distances as a member of Capital Area Runners in DC, and finally to today.
This race is will be my second marathon, and the first time I've run to raise money for charity. I'm so excited to channel my passion for the sport into supporting a good cause. The running community has given me so much in terms of support, friendship, and life experienes and it's time to give back.
I greatly appreciate any donations you are able to give!
Love life, love running.
