In 2020 I found the Boston bulldogs while grieving the loss of my boyfriend Sean, an avid member of the club, who lost his battle with addiction.
The Bulldogs were a huge part of Sean’s life. He talked about the club and running marathons everyday and I remember thinking “wow I wish I could do that, but I definitely can’t.” He looked at me one day and said “promise me you’ll join the Bulldogs and promise me you’ll run at least 1 marathon.” I rolled my eyes and said yeah, yeah, yeah I promise, only because he wouldn’t take no for an answer.
When I made that promise I couldn’t run half a mile, so I can’t believe that now I am asking for your support in running my second marathon. I am so grateful to be participating in the 2021 virtual Boston marathon with a team full of people who I have found all of my inspiration from. I am happy that with your help, I will be able to support the club that has changed my life and so many others’ lives.
