Marathon Mama

Posted on May 1, 2010


What do Ward 5 Councillor Brendan Crighton and Swampscott resident Lara Goodman have in common? They both have or will run in marathons. Crighton ran the Boston Marathon last month and Goodman will compete in the Cox Sports Providence Marathon tomorrow morning, starting at 8:00AM.

Goodman is on the board of the East Lynn Community Association (ELCA). A former resident of Lynn and artist who has had her work displayed at the Little Gallery Under the Stairs, she decided to use the marathon as a vehicle to fundraise for the ELCA. Over $800 has been pledged for Goodman’s run. In training for the marathon, she has run over 530 miles, or from Lynn to Pittsburgh.

Please join me and the board of the ELCA in wishing Lara a wonderful run tomorrow. For more about Ms. Goodman, please read my earlier post, and it’s still not too late to donate.
