I'm incredibly excited and grateful to be running this year's Boston Marathon on behalf of the Boys and Girls Club of Newton!
When I ran my first marathon back in 2012, I didn’t realize the affect it would have on me. On one hand, to be able to physically and mentally push myself for 26 miles was an incredible feeling of accomplishment. However, the feeling of accomplishment was more pronounced in seeing the impact each individual charity runner has on the local and national charities they represent. I’m incredibly thankful to once again have the opportunity to impact the Boys and Girls Club of Newton and I’m excited about the challenge that lies ahead.
