I first discovered I could run long distances when I accidentally got lost on a run and finally found my way back to my doorstep 10 miles later. When I moved abroad I used this as my way to explore the cities I visited. Getting lost started as my sightseeing tour and then turned into my training strategy after I signed up my first marathon.
My final year of college I lived in Prague. To this day, I still daydream about the winding, enchanted streets of Stare Mesto. When I found out that the Prague marathon was scheduled for the day before I was supposed to leave, I thought what better way to spend my last day than to run through the entire city one more time. It was an unforgettable 26.2 miles that lasted 03:23:28.
I am thrilled to run as a member of the Baldwin Breast Cancer Research Fund marathon team through the streets of my newest home, New York City. Running is a freedom that allows me to celebrate my strength and good health. I feel lucky to have the opportunity to run for a cause that is searching for a way to restore more people to health. Please show your support by donating here! All of the funds go directly to breast cancer research!
Ok, gotta run :)
