On Sunday, January 11, a group of Boston's top tech CEOs rolled out of bed at an unreasonably early hour, laced up their sneakers in 18° F (-7° C) weather, and hit the pavement. They're doing it all again next Sunday, too. And the week after that. But early mornings and biting winds aren't about to intimidate these brave innovators: this is Team TUGG we're talking about.
Want to run with us?
We're pumped to finally announce that TUGG has been selected by the John Hancock® Non Profit Program as one of the lucky organizations to receive four coveted charity bibs for the 119th Boston Marathon, and here's our team of absolute all-stars:
With the expert guidance of their coach, award winning trainer & author Erik Hajer, Mike, Brent, Matt, and Fred will train hard to cross that famous Boylston Street finish line on one of the most iconic marathon courses in the country. The next few months leading up to race day (April 20, 2015) aren't going to be a cake walk: 15 weeks of intense training will bring serious physical challenges, sore muscles, and many cold mornings for the CEOs. But, triumph and celebration are in store for Team TUGG, too.
These guys not only have the home field advantage; they've also got the biggest cheering section in Boston (hint: that's you!)
