Hello runners! Wanted to send a quick update on the “Meg Soles of Love” initiative being planned for the start of the Boston Marathon. First, the not-so-great news: Since we announced the initiative, we have been crushed by three snowstorms totaling more than three feet of snow. Unfortunately, this means we wont be able to start building the structure until the snow melts. Now for the amazing news: More running shoes arrive every day. We are up to about 200 pairs of running shoes. The love and personal stories behind each pair of shoes is so heartwarming.
