I'm running because On April 15th, 2013, I was sitting in a conference room waiting for a meeting to start and chatting with the woman sitting across the table from me. Suddenly the woman looked down at her phone, a look of panic passing across her face, and said, "There's been a bombing in Boston, my brother lives in Boston! I have to go!" and then grabbed her phone and ran out. Not believing what I heard, I turned to the woman who was sitting next to me. She confirmed what the first woman had said, and I too grabbed my phone and ran out the door. Desperate to locate my family and friends who live there, there was so much confusion, so much chaos. The phone lines were completely unavailable. Being a Bostonian, as well as a marathoner, I could not wrap my brain around what I was hearing, what we were learning as the minutes and hours, and then days, dragged on. Who could do this to my beloved city? To those innocent victims? I felt so helpless, so far from the people I love the most. There was nothing I could do but pray. And then a friend from home reached out to let me know about this amazing relay event that was starting just a mile up the road from where I now live, in Venice, California. A cross-country relay run, consisting of thousands of runners, finishing at the Boston Marathon finish line... The One Run For Boston, in support of the One Fund. Finally! Here was a way for me to get involved. For me to, in my own small way, help the city and people I love. And so I did. It was an amazing experience, and something I am so proud to have participated in. Once again this year The One Run for Boston will take place, this time starting in Santa Monica, CA, and again finishing in Boston. And once again I will participate, running the first leg from Santa Monica in a 7 mile group run. I am asking anyone that is able, please donate to this amazing cause, in support of the One Fund, which continues to help the many victims of that terrible day as they continue to work through their recovery. Due to the overwhelmingly generous and positive support I've already received I've raised my fundraising goal to $1000, but any amount that you can donate is greatly appreciated. If you aren't able to donate, prayers and well wishes are always welcome. Thank you, and God bless.
You .. ARE awesome !!!
