I proudly run another Boston for the kids and my friends at the Michael Carter Lisnow Respite Center, an awesome, inspirational place.
When you run a marathon for someone else it makes it all the more meaningful. This is my fifth Boston marathon and the third time I am running for my friends at the respite center. I feel blessed that my running can make a difference to someone else. It is a great feeling to be part of a dedicated team of runners that raises money for the center. I proudly wear my red respite center shirt and a highlight of the marathon is when I see the troops at mile 10. Their smiles and encouraging shouts keep me going. When the kids sang the song "You are my heroes" in sign language to all us runners, you know you want to keep running and keep supporting them for as long as you can.
