I thought marathons were out of my goals for good but here I am again trainning for Boston Marathon #5.
Back in January someone very dear to me faced the sad loss of her son due to mental health illness.... and I myself was getting familiar with the term. I realized how ignorant I was to the subject and promised to honor her family by running the marathon and with the purpose to raise awareness for the matter.
So here I am again ... supporting Brookline Mental Health Center , honoring the Tucker/Avorn family and in memory of my loved Dad who rests in my heart.
Please support my cause and I hope to see along the way Marathon Monday!!!
