Baystate Here We Come!

This race holds special significance to Danny and Amber. Not only will this race be the third anniversary of Amber's first marathon, running to a fourth place finish with a 3:16, but it will also mark the first race that Amber will be competing as Amber Ferreira! Additionally, this race will be Amber's younger sister, Deidre's, first marathon hoping to qualify for Boston as well as Greg Cullen, Amber's dad, returning for his second time running. And to round out the Dream Team, Dan Frische a cornerstone of this year's triathlon season, will also be running his first. It sure makes for a very exciting race day!

We'll both be racing for GCS-Triad tomorrow as part of the New England Grand Prix season finale so the competition is expected to be stiff. But as we both know, a marathon is not so much a race against others so much as it is one against yourself and any self-doubt.

Amber and Danny will both be running with the 3:10 pace group so hopefully we see a bunch of familiar faces in the record crowds expected tomorrow in Lowell.

Good luck to everyone using Baystate to qualify for Boston! We wish you our best!
