I am out on maternity leave, but each week I have a new Badass Chick for you! If you have any recommendations for Badass Chick, please email me when I return to the air. In the mean time, be sure to follow me on social @LorenRaye and I'll be back before you know it!

 

As we kick off Marathon weekend, I'm highlighting Jenna DelVecchio of Newton, who is running her very first Boston Marathon! 

 

Jenna only took up running in 2015, and I love the reason why: she had a bad breakup (haven't we all?! I firmly believe some of the best times of personal growth is after a devastating breakup!). Jenna wanted to do something for herself, so she took up running to clear her head. She started small with 5ks and half marathons, and eventually ran a full marathon. Growing up, Jenna used to watch the marathon every year with her family, so she knew Boston was her big goal. And the dream came true! Jenna is running on Monday for Catholic Charities which supports at-risk youth. It's right up her alley, because she works in childhood education so it's a perfect way to combine two things she loves. 

 

Best of luck to all the runners this weekend!
