On Sunday, May 4, I ran in the first annual Colleen Ritzer 5K in Andover. The race was held in honor of Ritzer, a popular teacher who was murdered at Danvers High School. You can check out some local news coverage of the race via CBS Boston.
It was amazing to run in a sea of thousands of pink shirts during the race. The course was started on an uphill and continued on an up/down rolling terrain for the first half. Part of the course wound through the bird sanctuary at Phillips Academy, which was lovely except for the giant hill! Overall it was a fantastic run and it was great to help raise money for the scholarship fund that was created in her memory.
