David Dobrindt of Milton is the founder of the Milton Running Club.  Each weekend, members train in the Blue Hills Reservation, so David was thrilled to hear about the Strive for 35 Challenge.  He registered himself and the MRC and both have completed the Challenge!  Here is a short video which captures the fun David had doing the Challenge with his daughter Emily and the other members of the MRC.
