THE STORY:

After years of racing and competing for myself I started to view my training more as a job. I lost the love I had for running. My husband told me I was being selfish and said that there were tons of people that wish they could walk, much less run and there I was complaining. Then a friend asked me to help start the triathlon program in their local chapter of Ainsley's Angels and in the process I became an Angel runner. Next thing I know I am participating in almost every race in Central MS. I have found my joy again. It is in the smiles of the riders we push, it is in the tears and laughter of the riders' parents, and it is in the group in Central MS that I call my Ainsley's Angels family. Now, fast forward to today. I jokingly told my friend I would never run another stand alone marathon again. Full Ironman, yes. Marathon, no. And yes, she thinks I am crazy. Well, never say never. She convinced me to enter the Marine Corps Marathon lottery. I did with the understanding that if it was meant for me to participate in, I would get in. Well, it is meant to be because I am in! So, bib is done, flight is done, hotel is in the works, now I just need to raise money for my charity and to earn my MCM Angel status. Please consider making a donation to my crowdrise page to help continue our mission of spreading the message of inclusion. I've got the legs. Let me use them for those who can't. #inclusionalwayswins
