Tapering for Boston...AGAIN :)
The run was really great. We started at BC and ran to Natick and back. The course was electrified with excitement and energy from all the runners out training. There were tents and cheering stations set up a lot like marathon Monday and the weather was near perfect. 45-50 degrees, partly cloudy, BUT there was a brutal headwinds both ways. On the way out and on the way back. No fair Mother Nature, but I'll take it if it means race day will be nice. At the water stop my mom was volunteering at it was sort of a special day in memory of a very special boy that passed away from cancer. The entire family was there and they had a poster sized photo of him. I got a whole group of the runners that run for him together with his mom and brothers and we took a selfie. I posted it to Ellen's facebook page and it already has nearly 100 likes.
So far I have raised about $15,000 for Dana Farber and I'm not stopping. I raised my goal to $20,000. You can help.....go to my page and make a difference.... let's reach the ultimate finish line - a world without cancer - together! www.rundfmc.org/2014/alicial
