I'm going back! Boston Marathon 2016 with Team Stonyfield

I’m running the BostonMarathon with Team Stonyfield!

I’m running the Boston Marathon in April with Team Stonyfield! A few weeks ago I was surprised to open my e-mail inbox to discover an e-mail from Stonyfield Yogurt with this subject heading,

“Special Invitation: Join us and run on Team Stonyfield!

Wait a minute . . . what?!?!? I read along further . . .

“As you know, Stonyfield is the official yogurt sponsor of the Boston Marathon . . . We have loved working with you through the YoGetter program throughout the past couple of years and we think that you would be a great fit to run on team Stonyfield!

Last year I did not run a road marathon due to injury. This year however, with my body fully recovered, I was hoping to run the Sugarloaf Marathon in Maine this spring and to try for another Boston qualifier. Before even reading the rest of the e-mail I knew that my plans had changed.

My response,

Oh my goodness and yes! Yes! Yes! I am so very excited to be a part of Team Stonyfield for the Boston Marathon 2016!!!! 

I have been holding back this news for awhile and now cannot wait to share my Stonyfield Team Boston Marathon journey with you! I previously qualified for and ran the Boston Marathon in 2013 and 2014 which caused my heartache but also much personal growth for me as I dealt with PTSD in the aftermath of 2013. Running the Boston Marathon in 2014 was about healing for me.

In 2014 I needed to go back and run and prove to myself that I could run through my fears. This year I will be proud to be running the Boston Marathon with Team Stonyfield. I will be running for Stonyfield and I will also be running for those who were injured physically or emotionally on Marathon Monday, April 15th, 2013. That day will forever be indelibly marked in my brain. I am thrilled to have another opportunity to run and be “Boston Strong” again!

I will be writing about my training this winter and will be sharing Stonyfield Yogurt inspired posts and recipes on my journey to marathon Monday.

I hope you will follow my journey to the Finish line on Boylston Street this year!

  2. Congratulations, that’s great news! While I would love to run Boston one day, my daughters have proven to be great athletes and are on travelling hockey and softball teams (both are on both teams) so there’s no time for racing (or super long runs) for me for quite a few years. I shall live vicariously through you and your training, congrats!

  3. Oh, congratulations!!! How amazing. You are going to rock it! I can’t wait to follow your journey.

    This girl is all done with the marathon distance. We are coming up one year since I ran my first and I honestly just have no desire to repeat the performance.
