St. Patrick’s Day Parade

The annual parade was held Sunday in Southie.

My goal is to carry the Stars and Stripes back to Boston to commemorate the victims of the bombing. I will be carrying two 3 X 5 foot American flags on six foot flag poles for the entire 26.2 miles, wearing a Patriots outfit. 

For the last year I have run with two flags 6 day a week for one day April 21.  I will be running in this years Boston Marathon as a charity runner for Autism.

Hope the B.A.A. will let me run with the two flag with the new rules. They can do a background check on me if they like, so I can run the stars and stripes Back to BOSTON!
