Dartmouth students marathon for a cause
Feeling a little bloated after Thanksgiving feasts? If you’re thinking about running off the holiday weight over the next few weeks this isn’t a bad time to start training for next year’s NYC Marathon.
You can look to Dartmouth students Annie Oppenheim, Audrey Sherman, and Katie Rohn for tips on the race – all three ran the 26 mile race through Team for Kids earlier this month. The organization has brought health and fitness programs to 100,000 children in over 400 schools across the US and Africa, according to their site. To date they have raised over $16 million for their cause.
According to the marathon trio, training was enjoyable because they had the opportunity to go on runs throughout the area (which, needless to say, included beautiful scenery) and to spend time together wile working out.
After four hours and six minutes of running and months of training, the three of them crossed the finish line feeling uplifted and accomplished; an ideal end to such a rewarding experience.
