It’s been a while since I’ve had a chance to write a blog post for the website. I took a little bit of a break for the summer. Then I decided to travel to Russia for a few weeks in the Fall. Then when I got back I found out that I’m eligible to run the 2019 Boston Marathon!!
I’m really excited to train for this event - but it’s taking a lot of time and commitment. Unfortunately - that means there won’t be many updates around here until the spring. However, I’ll do my best to keep posting pictures here, on Instagram and Facebook from time to time. Until then though, I could use your help.
As you may know, the Boston Marathon is the world's oldest annual marathon and is one of only six races to form the World Marathon Majors. Running the Boston Marathon is a big deal and I feel phenomenally lucky to be able to take part.
During the next few months, I'll be training hard to get in shape and complete this race. Over the course of my training, I'll be running somewhere between 900 - 1500 km to prepare for the big day. I'll be posting updates to my training progress on Facebook over the coming weeks.
This is where I need your help. As a non-qualifying runner I’m required is raising funds for a great charity: Easter Seals Camps. I've been given the goal of raising $2500 by race day! Please help me reach this goal by donating to this worthy cause.
Thank you for your support!
