After watching 9 Boston Marathons from the sidewalks of Back Bay (and one in the Finish Line Medical Tent), I have witnessed firsthand the pain, tears and exhiliration of the infamous Patriot's Day road race. As the Holmers bid "See ya latah" to Boston this spring, I somehow forgot the previous 9 I had watched and decided to just go out in style. The longest distance I have ever run is 10 miles.
I am raising funds for Boston Medical Center, the historic non-profit safety net hospital in the South End. We provide excellent care to the poor and marginalized, and do so in an environment of relying on state and federal funds and from private donations. My goal is to raise $5000 for the hospital, and I hope you find it a worthwhile cause. At the very least you will be able to sit back with a quiet satisfaction and chuckle as I toil through something so self-imposed and think to yourself, "I helped make this happen."
P.S. Also, for those who run with music, please list your top 1-5 running songs in the comments section below. Since most of you will not be able to be in Boston on April 15, I will take the playlist with me so you can cheer me on in spirit and in song.
