Just another relaxing Saturday-morning jog along the Charles.

On Monday, April 20, 2015 I’ll be running in the 119th Boston Marathon as part of the Boston Children’s Hospital “Miles for Miracles” Team. Now, you might say this hasn’t exactly been the easiest winter to be training for a marathon in New England, but it’s absolutely worth it for the chance to be able to run in the best race in the world, in the best city in the world, on behalf of the best children’s hospital in the world.

My family and I are so excited to be part of the Miles for Miracles team this year, because we love Boston Children’s Hospital. They have an incredible impact on our community, the greater Boston area, the whole of New England, and the entire world of pediatric medicine. Not only have they provided excellent care for our own children in the past, but also for the children of so many other family, friends, neighbors, and colleagues.

When I ran the Philly Marathon last year, this was the only RunKeeper bandana in existence! Now you could have one too!

Please follow the link above and help me support this wonderful institution. Your contribution will help Boston Children’s Hospital continue to serve low-income and at-risk kids, achieve cutting-edge breakthroughs in medical research, and provide superior education to the next generation of pediatricians and nurses.

My friends and family all know that if there’s one piece of running attire I love more than any other, it’s a good, old-fashioned bandana. That’s why I’ll be giving away these awesome RunKeeper bandanas as a thank-you gift. These are a custom order (not available in stores!) that RunKeeper has graciously allowed me to offer as a token of thanks for your support.

Let me know in the comments if you have any thoughts, questions, suggestions, or especially a story to share about your own experiences with Boston Children’s Hospital. Also, if you’re local, I hope to see you out on the course on Marathon Monday!
