The Runaway Friedler is back, but this time I am actually running!
I have dreamed of running the Boston marathon my entire life, but running was not something I thought I could do. Struggling with my body image, I didn't think I was strong enough, fit enough, thin enough.
Over the past few years I have finally gained confidence in myself and my abilities, so on April 15, 2019, I will be running the 123rd Boston Marathon for The Brookline Center for Community Mental Health. The Brookline Center provides outstanding, affordable mental health care and social services that help people and families lead healthier, safer lives.
I am running for The Brookline Center to help ensure that everyone has access to the help they need and no person suffers alone.
