“The Boston Marathon is on every runners bucket list. It’s the oldest annual marathon in the United States, and the qualification standards for entering have made it the mecca of running,” she said. “Being among 27,000 people in this iconic race with over half a million spectators cheering you on is an unbelievable feeling. The great thing about a marathon is that whether you come in first, or you come in last, everyone wins that sense of pride and accomplishment.”

Efforts like Mueller’s underscore the importance of health and wellness, one of the five broad principles of Cedar Crest College’s Strategic Plan.
