Boston.com recently had an opportunity for folks to publish reasons “Why I Run.” Naturally, I had to use part of the same essay I wrote last fall for Chicago Athlete’s “Why Chicago Runs” essay competition. I’ve linked it here: http://www.boston.com/newsprojects/whyirun/index.php#/story-214 The silly picture is of me from Washington, DC, when I was there last fall for the MCM.
I encourage you to post your reasons for running the Boston marathon. If you don’t want to post, read others’ stories. They’re pretty freakin’ awesome and will get you pumped up for our little jaunt on Patriots’ Day… one week from today!
