Every year on Marathon Monday I used to tell myself I should run it someday, then few days later forget about it until the following year. I'd do nothing about it, not even go out and run for a single mile. One beautiful May day I decided to go out and run on Carson Beach. It wasn't an easy mile, but at the end the feeling was good. Few days later I went out for another one, and another one. After a while the distances were getting longer and the feeling after every run was even better. Did running become a new hobby?
By the end of the summer I was thinking that running the Boston Marathon could be something achievable.
Now I am very excited to announce that on April 20th 2020 I will be running the Boston Marathon for the great people of Mass Eye and Ear.
