Boston Marathon Featured Runner - Laura Adams

Four months ago I never thought I’d be able to say I’m a marathoner. Four months ago, I never thought I’d be able to say I raised over $8,400 for the fight against cancer. April 17th, 2017 marked the day I said both.


It has always been a goal of mine to run a marathon. I always thought how cool it would be to run Boston, my home city, but never thought the most prestigious marathon would be my first. Now, here I am looking back to the day I found out I would be running the 121st Boston Marathon as part of the Expect Miracles Racing Team. Being a part of this team made my training, fundraising, and racing more meaningful as the charity’s cause hits so close to home.


Before this journey, I had never fundraised to this extent. Through the training and fundraising, I learned a lot about myself and others. It is the most rewarding feeling to have raised over $8,400 for the fight against cancer and to be a part of such an incredible cause. The support I received from family, friends, and strangers was overwhelming and made all the hard work worth it. From the starting line in Hopkinton, to the finish line on Boylston St., and every mile in between, I ran that day for everyone effected by cancer. After logging hundreds of training miles, raising thousands of dollars for cancer research, and completing my first marathon, I could not be more proud and grateful to be a part of Expect Miracles Foundation and the fight to find a cure.
