Why I'm running
Countdown to the 105th Boston Marathon -- Monday, April 16, 2001

I'm running the Boston Marathon because:

  • it's the marathon to run and -- except for the last couple of miles -- it's an exhilarating experience;
  • to raise money for the Arthritis Foundation; and
  • it's a good incentive to maintain fitness during the long, cold New England winter.

-- Rob Simms, associate professor, BU School of Medicine
