Q&A With Marcy Cook

When did you become a runner?

I started running just over five years ago.

The Boston Marathon is a couple months away! How is training going?

Training is really good right now! I'm feeling great during long runs and I have a half marathon practice race in a few weeks. I've tried to take on a more balanced approach to running this training cycle with cross training including strength training and yoga. Regular massage is always a part of any training plan I do.

What motivated you to sign up for this marathon and fundraising experience?
