#OneBostonDay and More Runners from the Why I Run: 2015 Project

Today Boston will be observing a moment of silence at 2:49pm to honor those affected by the Boston Marathon bombing that took place two years ago. It's a beautiful sunny morning here but I know my mind will be on that day, the victims, and everything that has happened since April 15, 2013.

It seems fitting that I introduce more runners from my Boston Marathon project, including those who were inspired to run 2015 by the events that took place two years ago:
Kendra Campbell was a teacher at the school where Martin Richards and his sister Jane attended. She is running for Team MR8 which was created in memory of Martin.
Kim is running her first marathon for the New England Patriots Charitable Foundation.
Lauren is running with Team in Training in memory of her father who died of Hodgkin's Lymphoma when she was a baby.
Cassi is an educator and mom of three who is running for Boston Children's Hospital.

Looking forward to cheering on these ladies and everyone else who will be running in less than a week! Will you be there?
