It’s hard to attempt to put to words what this journey has been. I started walking on April 18, 2014. 368 days later, I completed the 118th Boston Marathon. People make a big deal about running a marathon. They say you can’t train for a marathon and not have it change you. I think that’s […]
Run Boston Run from PenshireMedia.com on Vimeo. Just a little something to tide you over until I can sort through my pictures and create a nice narrative… come back this weekend? 🙂

A long time ago, I wrote a post where I covered some of the numbers thus far. It’s time to do it again… so here we go. First, a photo from the command center. We’re planning race day VERY carefully. $7,167.60. The amount of money you’ve helped me raise so far to support the team […]
Taken from the back cover of the 1998 Boston Marathon program. Because it’s a beautiful day. Because Thanksgiving dinner lasted until Christmas. Because time moves slowly. Yet flies.

Best. News. Ever. I’m officially a part of the Massachusetts Team In Training. Here’s how I learned about the start of the next portion of my quest, and being part of the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.
