My name is Weiyao Xiao. In 2004, I came from China to Boston to pursue a doctoral degree in Electrical Engineering at Boston University. I graduated in 2010 and am now working as a software engineer at Akamai Technologies in Greater Boston. Boston is the city where both Lingzi and I came to fulfill our goals and dreams in school and in life. Boston is also the city where I started my journey of running in 2011. For me running is more than a way to exercise and stay healthy. It is a place for psychological and spiritual renewal. It is a new way to understand myself and life and has become an important part of my life. I feel incredibly honored for the opportunity to run in the 2016 Boston Marathon in memory of Lingzi. It is truly meaningful to support Lingzi Foundation with such an important part of my life in the city of Boston. Please help support Lingzi Foundation by making a donation.
