It all started with a bucket list. Every year I watched the Boston Marathon and decided that there would be no more watching, only doing. Fast forward a month or two to Saturday night at a bar with some friends. I met Erin (who is now one of my closest friends) and we started discussing the marathon. She was a seasoned runner who ran for the American Liver Foundation, and encouraged me to join the team. (After a few drinks) Erin convinced me that I could do it. So, we exchanged emails and I emailed her the very next day.
