the runner's report

Our thanks to all of you who contributed to Children's Hospital and supported our runner, Jenn, in the Boston Marathon. Your kindness will be measured out in smiles on little faces, in renewed determination and courage among both patients and caregivers.

Here is Jenn's report on the race:

The RUN was AMAZING! I finished the marathon in 3:17:48 and was the 259th woman to cross the finish line! The race was unreal. The fans were great and the Children's Hospital cheering sections were amazing. The entire marathon experience is one which I will never forget; crossing the finish line was the greatest feeling!!

Congratulations, Jenn! You worked hard for this triumph, and we're proud and grateful for your efforts. And, admittedly, there's a certain snarky pleasue in having a runner who is way more hare than tortoise...whee!
