Meet Keli Rupert – BLC Running for Life Marathon Team Member

Kelli Rupert Running a half marathon

Introducing the fabulous Kelli Rupert. She’ll be running the Boston Marathon for the BLC  this year!

Hometown: Seekonk, MA

Ever run a marathon before? No, this will be my first of many…I am officially hooked on running!

Favorite post race snack? Spoonful of peanut butter, right from the jar!!

Most exciting thing about running the Boston Marathon? The emotions felt on Marathon Monday with the Boston crowd and camaraderie of the other 26 thousand crazies who decided it would be a good idea to train for a marathon during a New England Winter! and of course FINISHING

I can’t run a marathon without my…Garmin405 watch that tells me my distance, pace, time, calories and heart rate using satellites…It makes every run a measured sense of accomplishment.

What does running for the BLC mean to you? The BLC is giving me the opportunity to reach a personal goal of running 26.2 in front of family and friends as well as making an impact in my local community.  I really believe that the most important thing you can do in your own life is to make a difference in somebody else’s…and I am excited to do that with the BLC!

How are you training for the Marathon? I am using an 18 week plan; 5 days of running, 1 cross training day, 1 rest day, and a whole lot of ice each week!!!

Favorite song to get you up Heartbreak Hill? My Black Eyed Peas Pandora Mix
