I guess I forgot to post when I reached the $6,000 milestone last week, but that's OK because here we are at over $7,000! I brought donuts (with my face on them!) in for my co-workers on Tuesday, and my boss (a VP) sent an email to all the senior leaders in our company… Continue reading $7,000 Raised!
After having such good runs when first coming back from my injury, I was bound to have at least one not-so-great run before the marathon. Unfortunately, both of my last two runs have been awful. Last Tuesday, I knew I was going to run 4 miles for my Patient Partner Hannah's birthday that day. The… Continue reading Not So Fast

Saturday was the famed "last long run" for pretty much everyone running Boston. Some people run 22, some run 21, most run 20, others run less. A lot of charity teams bus… Continue reading 12 Miles Run & Done!
I've been lousy about updating my blog, I know. I haven't even been great about posting about my workouts on social media. I'd be lying if I said I wasn't exhausted. In fact, I'm starving and tired all the time. Even though I missed a full 6 weeks of running outside, I was still doing… Continue reading Pounding Pavement & $5,000 Raised
Thanks to my Uncle Brian & Aunt MaryEllen, my former co-worker and also a 2019 charity runner David "DJ" Webster, my Westfield State College friend Danielle Mainini, my mom, her dear friend Robbin, and one of my oldest & dearest friends Sean Ginley, I surpassed the $4,000 milestone. That means I've only got another $769 to… Continue reading $4,000 Raised!
