EVENT DATE: Nov 06, 2016
Thanks for stopping by! My name is Nick and this year I am running the TCS New York City Marathon with Back on My Feet, well, because it's a truly an amazing group - read on and you'll see. Back on My Feet, often simply known as "BoMF", is a nationwide organization that helps individuals experiencing homelessness transform their lives through running. BoMF operates in 11 cities where every week, at 5:30 in the morning, people from all walks of life lace up their shoes, circle up, and run, talk, and empower eachother to put one foot in front of the other. With this simple philosophy, we can achieve any goal, both running and otherwise.
And BoMF has been with me on my whole running journey. See, I am originally from New Jersey and lets just say running was never my forte. But, life had other plans; when I arrived in Baltimore for college a friend tricked me into being her training partner for her next half. The half marathon was BoMF Baltimore's famous Oldfields Half Marathon and thus started both my running career and relationship with BoMF. In the past three years I have gone on to run three marathons and joined BoMF Baltimore's Team SoBo. So this year I have decided to give back a little to such an incredible organization by fund-racing the NYC Marathon for them. I hope you'll consider donating, and please visit www.backonmyfeet.org to learn more about this incredible organization and how they are making a difference in your community!
Thanks for your time!
