Support Meghann Benesh’s Fundraiser!
This year will mark my fifth consecutive Boston Marathon. I feel privileged, humbled & so proud to be running this year in support of DLT Billy Coulter, a man who touched more lives, spirits, charities and families than he could ever know, and for Cops for Kids with Cancer, an organization that I have come to truly love and respect over the past five years of running in their support. I also am thrilled to be sharing this experience with my sister as she embarks on the journey to her first 26.2 finish line. She has supported me the last four years, and this year I can’t wait to share this monumental accomplishment with her by my side.
Billy used to say that when you cross the finish line you will have just completed an accomplishment that will be in your obituary. And he is right, it is not an easy feat, not for everyone to strive for, and not one to be taken lightly or for granted. It takes hard work, dedication and strength, both physical and mental.
This year will not be the same without Billy’s humor, smile, pride and expertise on race day, but I am confident we will make him proud. Expertise in way of telling us when people say you look great they are lying. Or to wear clean underwear on race day in case you have to visit the hospital. Billy used to end his emails with “do not worry about being undertrained, it will only hurt until you die.” I thank him for all he’s done, for all the motivation, and for sharing with us his wisdom and love for the MA State Police, the medals we earn, runs we complete and this charity that he frontlined. Thank you Billy, this one is for you!
