My younger sister, Juli Windsor is finally getting a chance to fulfill one of her bucket list items of running the 2013 Boston Marathon. She has been dreaming about this since she was a freshmen in Highschool. I’ve never seen someone work so hard and run so much, it continues to amaze me. She will also be the first little person in the Boston Marathon’s 116 year history to run the race. Her drive for both running and completing school as a Physicians Assistent is more than inspiring for anyone…
You can check out a video Boston Globe did on her.
UPDATE After the Boston Bombing.
What a joyous occasion turned into a scary and horrible attack at the Boston Marathon today. Juli was unable to finish the race do to the attack.. she was only 1/2 mile from the finish line. I have not spoken to her personally yet but heard through my dad. My mom was in the crowd on the other side of the street, she was hurt in the crowds panic and taken to the hospital to care for her shoulder.
