Last Monday, I participated in the Sanofi Genzyme Running for Rare Disease Day Relay. I ran from my Westborough, MA office building to the Framingham site. The run was 6.9 miles; the longest run of my training for the May 1st Providence Half Marathon so far.
In the past I run to reflect on myself, and self-reflection isn’t a bad thing by any means, but Monday I ran for my friend Shauna. I ran to commemorate our friendship, made possible by this wonderful organization. And the ironic thing about that is that Shauna and I live only a few miles from each other. I may never have gotten to know this smart gal with a passion for weather and a hatred for the color pink if it hadn’t been for this cause.
I am excited, humbled and grateful to be a part of this group for the first year (of hopefully many more to come). And I am looking forward to meeting my team along the way. Cheers!
