  • Mark’s Marathon III

    Hello everyone,

    The days are counting down as the big day draws near. What seemed like an eternity a few months ago, is now just a week away. April 16th will mark the 116th Boston Marathon, adding another exciting chapter to the long, rich history of one of the most famous Marathons in the world.

    As my many months of rigorous and time consuming training are winding down, the nerves and excitement are starting to build each day. I feel as prepared as I can be, and hope the weather is cooperative.  The course presents many challenges of its own, so no one running the race wants the weather to be a disadvantage.

    We all need as much help as we can get after 20 miles, and knowing there are still 6.2 miles still yet to conquer… During those last few miles, the fear of the unknown starts to kick in as your body and  mind slow start to breakdown. It almost becomes a mind over matter race at that point!

    Additionally, I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone for their contributions, encouragement and support.  As I have mentioned in previous posts, I am running for the non-profit American SCORES Boston at this year’s marathon. They have been a pleasure to work with and this has given me a chance to see another side to this remarkable organization that I would not have seen if it was not for the Marathon.

    Again, thanks so much for helping a worthy cause, and I hope to see you at the finish line on Patriot’s day afternoon!


    Mark E Sullivan
