EVENT: 2013 ING New York City Marathon

Dana Free


I've been a runner for many years but it wasn't till last year when I ran my first half marathon that I got the "runs". Lol. I completed 2 half marathons, 2 mud/ obstacle runs & countless 5ks & 10ks. So, the next step would be a full marathon, right? No, I felt I wasn't ready or it was something I could not finish but with the support & motivation from a good friend, Julissa, I decided to register for the ING NYC Marathon Lottery. Unfortunately, I wasn't expected. Sad & disappointed I accepted it & decided I would pick another full marathon to complete.

A few weeks later to my unexpected surprise, I received an email stating that I had been excepted to the marathon!!! Another good friend, Ralfy, had worked his magic & I got me in!!! I'm beyond grateful & excited to be able to run the NYC Marathon!!!

So a way to show my appreciation & gratitude, I've set up this donation page to benefit HOPE Ministries Food Pantry. HOPE Ministries Food Pantry is a partner agency of NJ Community Food Bank. They help to feed, clothe, minister to, & pray for many individuals as well as families in northern New Jersey. As a Health & Wellness Coach, I understand the importance of having nourishing foods readily available, as well as, a healthy spiritual practice.

If you could be so kind & find it in your heart to help me in giving back & supporting this wonderful cause!
