A Little About Us

Welcome to our blog! Marissa and I started this to document our training for the 2014 Boston Marathon.

When we ran on April 21, 2014 it also marked Mer’s 8th year in remission from cancer. We are forever thankful and indebted for the amazing care that she received at MGH, and running this marathon as part of the MGH marathon team is our way of thanking everyone that made her recovery possible.

Meredith Johnston and Marissa Hudson, born and raised in the Boston area, started this blog to track their marathon training journey to Boston. We write about running, CrossFit, eating, and all things in-between.

Thanks for reading, and keep coming back!

  1. Hi Mer and Marissa! My name is Cam and I have a quick question regarding raising awareness for cancer and was wondering if you could email me when you have a free moment. Thanks! Hope to hear from you soon. 🙂
