THE STORY:

Achilles has changed my life. It has given me a family away from home, a community who's values I believe in, and an opportunity to meet individuals who make me a better person every day.

We congregate twice a week in Central Park like a place of worship.  We share joys and sorrows, losses and gains, vulnerabilities and triumphs.  I could not be more proud to lead this Chapter of exquisite misfits in their journeys to conquer 100 yards or 100 miles. I have witnessed first hand how the NYC Chapter of Achilles has changed the lives of athletes with disabilities and volunteer guides alike.  Everyone leaves stronger than when they arrived.

It has been 1 year since I gave birth to my daughter and well over that since I participated in my own race. Realizing that the deadline to sell NYC Half Charity Entrant slots was ending tonight, I've decided to light a fire under me and see where these legs can take me - hopefully to the finish line. I know I only have 4 weeks to train but every workout I ask my athletes to push themselves further and harder, so it's time that I stand by my words, or collapse trying.

These 13.1 miles represent more than the steps that I take, but the lives of the athletes and guides of Achilles who have propelled me into the life I want to live - and the life I want to share with my daughter.  

Please consider sponsoring a portion of my run:

1 mile = $150

1/2 mile = $75

1/4 mile = $37.50

Water break = $25

Porto Potty break = $10

1 step = $5 

Love Kathleen (AKA Koach Kat)
