I have the opportunity to run the Boston Marathon 2014. I can’t believe it! I don’t think it has totally sunk in yet. I applied for a spot on the Dana Farber Marathon Challenge team a few weeks ago and never thought I would get in, just like NYC. Yesterday I got this email:
You’ve been accepted to the Dana-Farber Marathon Challenge (DFMC) team in the 2014 Boston Marathon!
I’m honored to be picked for the team. My sister, Pam has run Boston for Dana Farber twice and has volunteered on numerous cold training runs for the team. I will have to fundraise which will not be easy but all the money goes to cancer research. I would love to help put an end to this disease.
I have never considered myself a lucky person, but feel very lucky right now. I had a hard year. Breast cancer sucks. I think the gods/karma/budda is saying you deserve this for all you have been through. New York and Boston in 6 months, who could ask for anything more.
