EVENT DATE: Nov 03, 2013
I have been a runner for more than half my life. It's not only physically challenging, but mentally. As a person on the go, running has enabled me to continue to stay fit and healthy no matter which state or country I happen to venture to at any given time.
This race is very special to me. For one it's my first marathon!! A bit daunting, but certainly exciting!! Secondly, I couldn't have asked for a better way to break into the marathon club than to be doing so for a wonderful cause. Please help support me and AmeriCares for a greater cause. Thank you!
Team AmeriCares is running the 2013 ING New York City Marathon with a goal to raise $100,000 for deliveries of lifesaving medical and disaster aid to help people in crisis.
