Running Boston’s Run to Remember Half marathon

I am proud to be running Boston’s Run to Remember Half marathon Sunday, May 30th. It is a historic run through downtown Boston in honor of all of the fallen law enforcement officers. The proceeds of this race go to Kids at Risk Programs throughout the City of  Boston. These programs provide safe and nurturing environments encouraging inner city youths to make healthy choices and an alternative to gangs and acts leading to incarceration.  This race also benefits the following charities: American Cancer Society, Children’s Hospital, Determination and Team in Training.

This will be my second Half marathon. I am definitely a workout queen and weight train three times a week and run anywhere from 35-50 miles a week through rain, sun or snow!  There is nothing a good workout and run cannot do for me. It definitely sustains me and is the key to being my best self physically and mentally.

Last year, I ran the BAA Emerald Necklace Half marathon with a few friends. I had such an amazing experience that I had to sign up and do one again this year. I felt so accomplished and proud once I crossed the finish line and received my medal. What a feat! Not to mention it was the most stellar picture perfect fall day with breath-taking scenery and perfect sunny running weather. All I remember was that at mile 3 my competitive spirit kicked in and I was off. From there on in, I had ‘runner’s high’ and swear I did not feel an ounce of pain or stiffness my entire 13.1 mile run. I completed in less than two hours and was thrilled to have finished.

In preparation for this run, I have been clocking the miles with the same small and long runs I did last year and have been taking good care of myself, so I am hopeful for good weather and for my best run ever!
