THE STORY:

Some of you know Celeste; some of you don't know Celeste. Celeste is a girl from southwestern Connecticut. She'll be 21-years-old when she crosses the finish line at her first marathon: the Moscow International Peace Marathon, taking place in September.

Why she chose MIPM to be her first marathon is simple, compared to why she chose to run a marathon, at all. To get the easy things out of the way: this is the cause Celeste feels most strongly for (with the exception of providing quality education to all those who can benefit from it). Added benefits are the fact that she is studying Russian and has a strange curiosity about the country; some decades after members of her family were forcibly brought to Russia to work during the Second World War, she feels compelled to go by choice. Releasing the negative emotional significance of the past is one thing needed for peace.

So, why a marathon? Well, why not! The first nineteen years of Celeste's life could be described as the accumulation of potential energy: now, she is interested in meeting her potential. This is a healthy way to do that!
