A little late to posting this, but…Officially received my acceptance to run the Boston Marathon 2014 with Dana-Farber Cancer Institute!!!!! I CANNOT WAIT to start pounding out those miles with the most inspiring group of runners I’ve ever met, in support of my friends and family who’ve battled cancer. It’s been a long road this year after all of the training last season and the tragic events at the finish line, affecting me and so many of my loved ones. I was on Boylston St. when the events occurred, as was my family watching the race, and so many of my teammates near. It’s been a long healing process, and I cannot wait to come back this year and finish what we started. Boston Marathon 2014 (especially you, Heartbreak Hill), here we come!!! #DFMC25
largesunglasses asked: I hope you are ok!
Thank you so much for checking in. I am ok, deeply saddened, but ok.
Yeah, something like that.
People always ask what goes through your mind when you’re running. This is about right. I’m no Rob Thomas, but I’ll admit to belting out a few lyrics. Rocky Balboa is my go-to.
Micha and Mike this one goes out to you. THANK YOU for your endless support throughout this whole journey. I’ve been trying to find you a good gif…(I may have scoured the cat gif archives), but I kept coming back to this one. Just can’t deny it. YOU BOTH ARE BALLER.
5 days. I’m comin’ for you, Heartbreak Hill.
When I saw we were bumped over the 4k mark! $4,160.99!!! THANK YOU, Crystal!! You inspire me with your endless positivity. spirit, and giving heart!! Good luck on your race too and kick some Triathalon bootay. (I realize there’s a lot of Friends gifs goin’ on here. I’ll try to make this my last one. Try)
