On Running Boston: Kaylee

Kaylee is a mentor Spring Distance Training program and part of our Hillbillies Trail Team. She recently completed the Boston Marathon, and we asked her what was the best part about running the Boston Marathon. - Andrea

My favorite part of the Boston Marathon was how loud the crowd was for the entire second half. I was hurting and the weather was terrrrrrrible (which is to say it was Seattle winter weather hahahah), and having all the fans out there braving the weather with us was the only thing that kept me going once my hammys and quads decided they weren't particularly interested in continuing the race. There's a real sense of community that kept me moving--and I'm never going to forget it.  - Kaylee
