  • One year ago today I became a part of Team MR8. The NYC half was the beat, most meaningful race I’ve ever done and I’m so proud to be able to continue running for the Martin Richard Foundation. I can’t think of a better charity to run my first full marathon for ☺️ 43 Super Bowl squares are still up for grabs and there’s lots of 💵💵💵 to be won! Thanks to those who have already donated and picked squares. I truly appreciate your continued support. #Super Bowl #superbowlsquares #teammr8 #martinrichardfoundation #runformore #fundraiser #fundraising #chimarathon #marathonrunner

  • Well, here’s a way to kick off your Monday. I spotted something new today at the elementary school where I volunteer with @gotrboston. Yeah, it’s a #LittleFreeLibrary, but it’s actually more special than that. This is a “kindness library” dedicated to the memory of Martin Richard, the 8-year-old boy who was killed in the Boston Marathon bombing in 2013.
:
In addition to taking a book or leaving a book, let’s also think about how we can uphold Martin’s desire for “No More Hurting People. Peace.”
:
{The sign in the inside says this was a service project by Joe Duggan. Eagle Scout project? Anyone know?}

  • We were able to take Little A and Baby J to play at the recently completed Martin’s Park in Boston this weekend.  This gorgeous and accessible park is a beautiful tribute to the youngest victim of the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing, Martin Richard who was 8 at the time he was killed on April 15, 2013. 
I lived in Boston for a few years and my sister and brother in law have lived there for almost a decade.  I LOVE this town.  We have all run the Boston Athletic Association’s 5K the weekend of the marathon for more than 5 years, with my first time being the year of the bombing, just a couple of days before it happened.  I will never forget the feeling of running under the Boston Marathon Finish Line for the first time during the 5K that year. 
My sister and brother in law attend the Marathon every year and thankfully were a couple hundred feet away from the bombs when they went off.  I will never forget that day, hearing that they were okay and just thinking who would want to hurt all of these innocent people on one of the most festive and amazing days of the year in Boston?

The entire city is buzzing with excitement, comradely and joy during Marathon weekend.  I feel blessed to have experienced it visiting and just taking it all in. That is how the whole town feels that weekend And I’ve never even run the Marathon! 
Martin’s Park is perfection, both kids were able to play safely and had a blast. It’s also right behind the Boston Children’s Museum and couldn’t be in a more perfect location on the waterfront in Boston. Both the park and the view are absolutely gorgeous. 
Little A loved finding a rainbow at the park and sat quietly watching while tears ran down my face and we remembered a special little boy who made a poster the year before the bombing reading “No More Hurting People - Peace.” #martinspark #martinrichardfoundation #nomorehurtingpeople #nomorehurtingpeoplepeace

  • Yesterday we ran the MR8K for the Martin Richard Foundation 💛 It was a five mile race with steep hills 😮 My time was 40:42 and my pace was 8:12. I’m more impressed with my places. I’ve come along way since my first race (5K) three years ago 👏🏻 The race was for an amazing cause and we are going to make this an annual race 😊 Also, we got to see the Warrior Ice Arena and take a photo with Blades 🐻 .

  • MR8K ⁣
⁣
Today’s race was emotional to say the least. ⁣
⁣
I will always remember where I was on April 15th, 2013 and where I could have been. I was invited to the finish line party for the Joe Andruzzi Foundation at Forum. I’ll remember the days and weeks that followed afterwards. The fear I had for my then girlfriend, now wife’s mother who had to go to work in Watertown the following days as a manhunt was going on. Today she greeted us at the finish, proud of her grandson for finishing the race. ⁣
⁣
I’m so happy that I was able to run today with my son. We’ve been training together all summer long for the Chicago Marathon. He is my inspiration. I don’t know what I would do without him, I can’t even imagine what the Richard family has been through. Today we ran for Martin Richard and his message of “No More Hurting People. Peace” ⁣
⁣
Afterwards we went to Boylston St. and took a moment to reflect at the site of the bombing. With a face full of tears, I gave Colin the biggest hug. 💙💛⁣

  • Oh just two dummies out for a run on Labor Day. 
I think about Martin Richard - my niece will soon be the same age as him when he was murdered and it breaks my heart. He is in the slap of the sneakers running through Brighton, in the kids playing in the grass after the race, in the birds that fly free. But he should be home with his family, and he is not and it just proves that life can be both joyous and sad at the exact same time. #mr8k #martinrichardfoundation

  • Yesterday we spent over an hour at the new Martin’s Park. DO NOT miss this awesome addition along the Boston Waterfront!
.
We had an awesome day exploring Boston’s Seaport. It’s hard to believe this bustling area of the city didn’t exist when I was in college here. (Am I that old?!)
.
(Check out my story today to see more of the playground)

  • Uplifted Unicorn, or, a #placeforplay x a #placeforopeace 🦄✌🏻
.
This is my daughter playing on the marooned ship in Martin’s Park, wearing her unicorn headband as she is wont to do.  For more about this very special park, pls. see my previous post.
.
P.S. I actually didn’t want her to wear her unicorn ears on this day because they didn’t match her dress — but she insisted. It is fitting that she did, though, as the unicorn is the mascot of the Boston Athletic Association (B.A.A.) which puts on The Boston Marathon + Freya herself completed the marathon in utero the year after the bombing which took little Martin Richard’s life.
.
P.P.S. Also fitting + poetically random (don’t you just love when life is like that?) is that I am posting these #latergrams today of all days which, as our “Alexa” reminded me when I said good morning to “her,” is the Anniversary of Martin Luther King Jr.’s 1963 “I have a Dream” speech. Again, pls. see my previous post or this won’t make that much sense.

Me to the kids: This is Martin’s Park.
Henry: Martin Luther King?
Me: No, but this Martin was also killed by bad people. + he also had a big dream. We have to remember his dream - his words - not the bad people.
.
P.S. Martin’s Park is located along the Boston Harbor next to the Children’s Museum in the Seaport. It opened this June + honors the youngest victim of the 4/15/13 Boston Marathon Bombing, Martin W. Richard, age 8 (that is only one year older than Henry here — and incidentally, Martin’s older brother who survived the blast is also named Henry.) MY baby Henry is also why I wasn’t cheering at the finish that year. Anyway, there is a photo of Martin smiling holding a handwritten sign: “No more hurting people. Peace.” It started a movement, a foundation + not least of all, the creation of this park.

  • 🏅Another 13.1 miles 🏃🏻‍♀️ for the record books. This race was extra special because I ran as a D.C. member of @team_mr8. 👏🏼
I raised over $800 for this amazing non-profit that provides opportunities for young people to learn, grow, and lead through volunteerism and community engagement. There’s still time to #donate so if you’d like to give back the link is in my bio.
🌧 
Despite being absolutely soaked, it was a wonderful race in this incredible city. Now it’s time to take a break from running for awhile and help my body heal.

  • I may not have been a Boston Marathoner this year, but I will always be a part of Martin Richard’s team. Today, on One Boston Day, on the sixth anniversary of the bombings, I felt there was nothing more fitting. In 2018, running for Martin changed my life. I carried him with me, but he truly carried me through that storm. Team MR8 is incredible. Magic happened out there again today - and it was all for you, buddy. Six years later, and we are still #BOSTONSTRONG 💛💙

Yeah, it’s a #LittleFreeLibrary, but it’s actually more special than that. This is a “kindness library” dedicated to the memory of Martin Richard, the 8-year-old boy who was killed in the Boston Marathon bombing in 2013.

In addition to taking a book or leaving a book, let’s also think about how we can uphold Martin’s desire for “No More Hurting People. Peace.”

  • Well, here’s a way to kick off your Monday. I spotted something new today at the elementary school where I volunteer with @gotrboston. Yeah, it’s a #LittleFreeLibrary, but it’s actually more special than that. This is a “kindness library” dedicated to the memory of Martin Richard, the 8-year-old boy who was killed in the Boston Marathon bombing in 2013.

  • Uplifted Unicorn, or, a #placeforplay x a #placeforopeace 🦄✌🏻
.
This is my daughter playing on the marooned ship in Martin’s Park, wearing her unicorn headband as she is wont to do.  For more about this very special park, pls. see my previous post.
.
P.S. I actually didn’t want her to wear her unicorn ears on this day because they didn’t match her dress — but she insisted. It is fitting that she did, though, as the unicorn is the mascot of the Boston Athletic Association (B.A.A.) which puts on The Boston Marathon + Freya herself completed the marathon in utero the year after the bombing which took little Martin Richard’s life.
.
P.P.S. Also fitting + poetically random (don’t you just love when life is like that?) is that I am posting these #latergrams today of all days which, as our “Alexa” reminded me when I said good morning to “her,” is the Anniversary of Martin Luther King Jr.’s 1963 “I have a Dream” speech. Again, pls. see my previous post or this won’t make that much sense.

  • [swipe] 🏃🏻‍♀️Ran in the MR8k today to honor Martin Richard, first responders 🚔, and those lives forever impacted by the Boston Marathon bombings.
.
Who knows... maybe in 2020 I’ll be running the Boston Marathon representing this amazing foundation (a goal of mine).
.
It was hot ☀️ outside, but I kept telling myself to run for those who can’t. Got to run down Commonwealth Ave, by the MA State House, 🌷Public Garden, and finished the race on center ice 🏒 at the TD Garden. A Labor Day well spent.
