Kismet's Bio

Graduation Year: May 2012

As a sophomore I watched my sister(LA '10) train for, and run the Boston Marathon with the Tuft Marathon Team. At the time I remember thinking, "When I'm a senior, I've got to do this!" Flash-forward two years, and here I am, a senior finishing up my degree in Political Science and ready to take on the challenge and opportunity of being a member of TMT. I know it won't be easy, but I'll be running with my dad (see runner profile Richard Swett). Not to mention, with the extensive support of my large family (I'm one of seven children), friends here at Tufts and elsewhere, and the support of fellow Marathon runners I know I'll be able to accomplish this goal of running 26.2 on April 16, 2012. Thank you for your support, and wish me luck!
