Meet The Team:
Will grew up in Boston playing many sports — baseball, basketball, soccer, and track and field. But when his competitive days were over, he searched for a way to satisfy his competitive spirit. That is when he picked up running. He is no stranger to the Boston Marathon as 2019 will be his seventh time running — but this time, he aims to run it in fewer than four hours.
Cliff grew up in southern New Hampshire watching his father run 16 consecutive Boston Marathons. Then in 2008, he ran his first Boston Marathon in 4 hours and 35 minutes. He has run four Boston Marathons after his first but has yet to finish faster than he did in 2008. Now, the owner of Warehouse Bar & Grille looks to break the elusive 4-hour marathon mark.
Rich approaches the starting line with one thing in mind — winning. He isn’t the biggest, fastest, or strongest, but the mentality he carries into his training and races would tell you otherwise. The 2019 Boston Marathon will be his fifth Boston Marathon and his ninth marathon overall.
Susan has been running since she used to miss the bus in elementary school. Now she is the founder of CharityTeams, has run hundreds of races and dozens of marathons, and continues to qualify for the Boston Marathon, year after year.
Greg believes “Life is a bunch of little decisions that become big. I love being able to show my kids the importance of staying active.” As the VP of Brand at TB12, McEachern is set on living out the ethos of the brand — doing what you love better and for longer. In just a few months he will be turning forty, and he has made longevity a goal. Greg hopes to run the marathon in under 3:45 and be the fittest he’s ever been.
Over the past 18 months, Colin has run 10 marathons, traveled the world, and even earned his World Marathons Six Star Finisher Medal. He ran his first Boston Marathon last year, and this year, he’s ready for more. This year, Colin is hoping warmer weather gives him an edge on 2019 so he can run the best marathon of his life.

I can’t think of a better motivation to complete 26.2 miles than to raise fund to help young people achieve their goals and reach their full potential. For many years I wrote speeches for the late Mayor Menino, including his remarks after the bombings. This year I am thrilled to be running for the victims and their families–be one of the thousands of runners crossing that line in the name of the love and resilience this race is about.
Samantha is a senior at Wake Forest University studying Communication. She ran the 2018 Boston Marathon almost one year after her second Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) surgery and was fully healthy after just three months of rehabbing her knee at the TB12 Center. The 2019 Boston Marathon will be her second marathon, one that she hopes to finish in less than 4 hours.
