I am so proud and honored to run the 2014 Boston Marathon with the MIT Strong Marathon Team. The event will mark the one year anniversary of last year's tragic bombings and the senseless murder of MIT Police Officer Sean Collier. The MIT Strong team—representing students, faculty, staff, and alumni—will join thousands of other runners at the starting line this spring to honor Sean Collier's life and legacy and to represent the Institute on the marathon course. I couldn't think of a better reason to run 26.2 miles. Please watch my video and join me in supporting this worthy cause.
