WE LOVE THAT DIRTY WATER.. and we ran through ALL OF IT on Marathon Monday last year! Call us crazy, but we are back for another 26.2.... :)
In my first ever true road race years ago, a 5-miler with Annette Romero Ragusa and Elizabeth Cohen (Rich Cohen) to support the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.... I cried mid-race. I couldn't pace properly, I had anxiety about not knowing the course, I really didn't understand the sport of distance running. That day I thought I'd never complete a race again.
Flash forward a decade later, and I can PROUDLY say that how excited I am to toe the start line in Hopkinton on April 15th, and race 26.2 miles to Boylston Street for the 2nd time (and full marathon number 4!!)
Running is hard. Running is fierce. Running is social. Running is solo. Running is everything and anything you need the sport to be. And I am so glad the running community found me!
And now even more so, I am glad to have found The Heartbreakers (Boston's BEST running team!!!!)
Team sports and having a solid support system through athletics and wellness programs helps our children build strong foundations. To use the sport of running to give back to these programs, and help raise money for the Boston Bruins Foundation again is truly something special!
And all of the impactful work that the Boston Bruins Foundation does with Dana Farber Cancer Institute, Boston Children's Hospital, and The Special Olympics of Massachusetts is what motivates me to tackle this race season!!!!
