Although I failed to qualify for the Boston Marathon by just 23 seconds, I found fulfillment in traveling to the race to cheer on the runners and provide free hugs. 🙂 Please Watch & Share the Love!

A brief explanation of my Free Hugs Experience, featured in the New York Times and Fox 25 Boston News.

An email from one of my heroes, Rod Dixon, Olympian and Winner of the 1983 New York Marathon:


What you did yesterday was certainly a ‘Super Hero’ effort. Giving the runners free hugs and getting the spirit of the marathon to the runners was heroic.

 You are on my list of Heroes!

Best Wishes
