To All My Supporters of Action for Healthy Kids:

I just wanted to send one final thank you to everyone who donated to this charity. I completed my race in 5 hours and 16 minutes :) Which is actually quite a miracle considering I walked a good portion of miles 20-24 (or barely shuffled, hehe). Somehow I did regain some strength and managed to run the last two miles of the race. It was an amazing experience and I am proud and honored to have such wonderful people in my life who supported me throughout this entire process.

I find no greater sense of accomplishment than providing healthy food to our nations children. Working with kids one on one and seeing families struggle to work and put food on the table is humbling. I want their school breakfast and lunch programs to provide the healthiest foods possible, as this is often where the majority of their food comes from.

Thank you again :)

Stuff About Me:

Help me improve the health of our nations kids!!  

I am running the Chicago Marathon for a charity called Team Healthy Kids, which is a non profit founded in 2002 by the 16th Surgeon General, David Satcher, MD PhD. Its goal is the help battle the pediatric obesity epidemic. 

My passion is helping our children's health through nutrition.  As a pediatric and neonatal dietitian, I hope that I can not only talk about staying healthy but set an example for others to follow.  

THANK YOU so much for your support! 


PS, This is my first marathon, and I'm equal parts excited and terrified! :)
