2014 B.A.A. 5k – Boston 5K – Boston Athletic Association, April 19

5k

I never thought I would run in a race associated with the Boston Marathon and/or BAA.  Today I was honored to be running the Boston 5k. It was an experience unlike any other. “Humbled. Grateful. Excited ! So many words…. I get to play a very small part in a very big thing.”  …For many obvious reasons I […]

Most of us look forward to summer all year round, the pool parties, the Barbeques, the trips to the beach, but what we don’t look forward to is the toll that the season can take on our skin. It’s hot, it’s humid, we will constantly be jumping in and out of salty oceans and chlorine […]
