Video Feature: A Team Effort
In the months leading up to the 26.2 mile trek from Hopkinton to Boston, the Tufts President's Marathon Challenge team is immersed in training, learning how to prepare their minds and bodies for the arduous race. During this process, the team -- which consists of students, faculty, staff and friends from across the university and surrounding community -- builds a support network that lasts not just through the race, but beyond. In this video feature, Tufts graduate and former marathon team member Steve Eliopoulos (A'89) glimpses into the lives of these runners and the regimen and motivation that drives them.
