The BLC is the first AIDS Service Organization to be chosen by the the Boston Athletic Association to be an official charity for the Boston Marathon®. The past two years we have had fantastic teams of runners raise over $150,000 for the BLC. Our 2010 team is shaping up to be a great group. Over the next few weeks we’re going to be introducing you to the runners, this week meet:
Hometown: South End of Boston, MA — but, I grew up in Guyana, South America.
Ever run a marathon before? Yes. This will be my 4th.
Favorite post race snack? Banana and Lemon-Lime Gatorade
Most exciting thing about running the Boston Marathon? The energy from the crowd. They are all there to see us cross the finish line.
I can’t run a marathon without my… Lip Balm (I’m addicted to that stuff)
What does running for the BLC mean to you? A place of hope and community.
How are you training for the Marathon? Running in cold weather – along the Charles and around the neighborhoods in Boston. Look for the guy in the orange beanie and big smile. 🙂
Favorite song to get you up Heartbreak Hill? No song. Just the sound and cheers of the crowd. It really motivates you to keep going.
