Justyn Mayo: St. Francis House
Hi my name is Justyn Bolling Mayo! I grew up in Boston and Martha’s Vineyard, except for a few years spent in New Mexico while finishing high school. Fitness and training have always been a passion of mine with small group training being a personal favorite.
I work hard to model a balancedlifestyle for everyone I train and live by the mantra “go the extra mile, it’s never crowded there”—and this year, I’ll be running an extra 26.2 as I pursue my first full marathon here in Boston.
I am raised by family members who lead by example and who often give back to the community in unique ways. For Halloween my family joyfully shares backpacks filled with school supplies to local kids and families in Boston—a tradition that’s been going strong for over 30 years! And my Aunt Gloria, she used to share turkeys and whole chickens with those without a home during the holidays.
My whole life I have witnessed and experienced the joy of helping others. In memory of my beloved mother, Thelma “AwRa” Bolling, and my father, David Mayo, it is my pleasure to represent St. Francis House In the 2020 Boston Marathon! See you at the finish line!
