Thompson woman to run in Boston Marathon to fund research on son’s disorder
THOMPSON, N.D. — Jessica Eliason ran her first marathon last June.
“It was a bucket-list thing,” she said. “I just wanted to run one while I was still in half-decent shape.”
Make that two. The 31-year-old will run in Monday’s Boston Marathon. This time, the race comes with a higher calling.
She won’t run the 26-plus miles to add to her list of accomplishments. Instead, she’ll run for Larry, her 2 ½-year-old son.
