I’m honored and excited to be running my fourth consecutive Boston Marathon for the Boston Bulldogs Running Club on Monday, April 15th, 2019. As a co-ed 501(c)3 non-profit running club, our mission is to provide an anonymous and safe community of support for all those adversely affected by addiction - those in recovery, their friends and family, the clinical community, and the community at large - to promote the importance of wellness and self-leadership in recovery. The benefits of running and wellness (physical, mental and spiritual), as well as the sense of community offered through the Club, can play an important role in recovery. Running and wellness can change a person’s beliefs about who they are and help each of us find our true potential.
I’ve been deeply involved with the Boston Bulldogs since our launch in October of 2015 and, since then, shared countless miles at the Chestnut Hill Reservoir with fellow Bulldogs, led our weekly summer workouts, and served in the role of Race Director for our Run for Recovery 5K in 2016 and 2017. As someone who has been running for as long as I can remember, I can attest to the fact that an activity as simple as running can have a truly transformational impact on one's day to day life. Coaching and connecting with club members these past three years has been an amazing experience, and being surrounded by both beginners as well as veterans of the sport has taught me so much.
By running the 2019 Boston Marathon for the Bulldogs, my main hope is to reach more individuals whom we can support through our coaching, our mentoring, and, more simply stated, our friendships. Please consider making a contribution to my fundraiser for the Bulldogs. Thank you!
