The Museum of Science did a great job with their profile of my running and coaching experience:

This is my second year coaching the Museum of Science TEAM. I really believe in their mission and last year’s TEAM raised enough money to purchase two vans to support the Museum’s Traveling Programs, which brings science programs to over 81,000 students annually in schools, community centers, and libraries.
For over 15 years, Traveling Programs has helped the Museum forge strong connections with community organizations and leaders in an effort to broaden the availability of the Museum’s resources. These programs provide a special opportunity for schools that simply do not have the financial resources for a field trip to the Museum. The funds raised by the marathon runners will go toward purchasing a new van fleet and expanding programming to new communities.
The Museum of Science will be hosting the kick-off on Tuesday evening for all 7 charities that I will be coaching for the 2011 Boston Marathon.
