A little about why I’m running:
I’ve been a spectator for the Boston Marathon since 2004 (if you’ve never done this, put it on your list for this year) and I decided that I wanted to run the Boston Marathon this year. Slightly crazy but pretty excited about the journey...and the beer at the finish line (it’s all about balance, right?)! I started watching the marathon my freshman year of college and now I bring my two boys every year to cheer on the runners!
I’m beyond excited to be running to support Natick Community Organic Farm. My son has done educational summer programs there and we love visiting the farm animals (the pigs are my favorite). The Farm offers so much to the local community. Supporting local farms is truly so important! Any and all amounts are appreciated!
