This is Matt’s first time running the Boston Marathon and he could not be more excited to run in partnership with Women’s Lunch Place. He took up a more serious interest in running over the past few years and is grateful for the opportunity to both run in the Boston Marathon while supporting an outstanding organization.

When not running he enjoys reading, hiking, and going to bar trivia nights with a few friends.
