Two of my biggest passions in life are rowing and running, so running Boston and helping raise money for G-Row is the best of both worlds!
I was introduced to the sport of rowing in 2004. I was immediately hooked! I love the sport. It has been very rewarding to me physically and also socially. I am definitely a much healthier person because of rowing.
I am also an avid runner. I started running competitively about six years ago. I ran my first half marathon on Thanksgiving day in 2009 and I knew right when I crossed the finish line that I definitely wanted to run a marathon. The Boston Marathon has always been "the marathon" to me. I have personally witnessed over a dozen Boston Marathons in my life, always wishing that someday it was me that was running. Now I have that chance!
The G-Row Marathon team allows me to achieve my goal of running Boston while helping support a great organization which provides rowing to adolescent girls from Boston public schools. G-Row Boston (http://www.growboston.org/) brings the physical, psychological and social rewards of rowing to girls who may not otherwise have access to the sport. The program also provides mentors and college advising through a partnership with The Bottom Line. Since the program's inception, almost every G-Row graduate has gone on to a four-year college!
I am determined to do this and with your support we can make it happen! Every dollar helps! I appreciate any support you can provide! See you at the finish line!
