Inspiring Speech!

Posted: February 9, 2012 in Uncategorized

I have always cherished getting to know the Marathon Coalition runners on a deeper level than simply our commitment to getting to the finish line of the Boston Marathon in relative comfort.  Afterall, they are unique and special because they’ve committed themselves to raising funds that will provide opportunities for people who would otherwise not be given them.  Training for the Boston Marathon is just another part of what drives them in their commitment to making a significant difference in the world.

At the conclusion of a recent training run I thoroughly enjoyed speaking with Millie and learning about her story.  Since training for a marathon is all about taking on big challenges, dealing with setbacks and HUGE accomplishments, Mille is well positioned to succeed on April 16, 2012.  Millie is running for Summer Search, which provided her many of the aforementioned opportunities that she’s committed to providing others. 

I hope you are as inspired by her story as I am.  Her example will be my True North whenever I need direction or a reminder of how important it is to deal with any challenge I encounter in the most positive way!
