My name is Andrea Sowden. I am a mom of two amazing children, full-time Registered Nurse, and avid runner. Running was something I was inspired to do after watching my first marathon and saw the true spirit of human will. I run for those who can't and I run for myself because it's something that I never thought I could do. I am a member of Can't is Not an Option (CINAO) and found some of the best people in my life by joining a running group. I have run several 5k and 10ks, 3 half marathons, and the Steamtown Marathon. My biggest personal goal is to run such an incredible race as the New York City Marathon and be a part of such an amazing charity like Ryan's Run 8 to benefit Allied Services.
Thank you for taking the time to visit my page and for your donation to such an amazing cause! I look forward to the journey ahead and the big day of November 5, 2017 to run the NYC Marathon. I will be training for four months starting in July to prepare for the marathon and will continue to post my progress throught the summer.
