I run for my physical and mental health and have found a community of like-minded runners on this over 6-year journey. Mental health is especially important to me as I was diagnosed with post-partum depression after the birth of my second son and I believe every person should have access to the critical supports that places like Call2Talk offer. I have completed multiple 5Ks, 10Ks, and a half marathon and am thankful for the opportunity to participate in this year’s Boston Marathon while supporting such a meaningful organization.
