THE STORY:

Running a marathon, especially the New York City Marathon has been a fascination for me for as long as I can remember. A former track & field athlete and dancer, training and discipline were necessary means to an end. After graduating high school, I went on to pursue my dance career but continued to run for love of the sport. On August 29, 2008, on my way to school, I was in a terrible car accident that resulted in several injuries that required tending.

After a year of physical therapy and functional movement work I was able to walk without discomfort but returning to dance or running at that point was out of reach. From 2010 through 2013 I went through more time of physical therapy and gained enough strength to restart my yoga practice and light exercise. 2014 was a huge turn around year for me, I was able to run longer distances again and not experience pain. 2015 I became stronger and more body aware and was even able to take dance classes again.

When 2016 rolled around, I knew this was my year to do something big as a testament to all the hard work I put in to get to where I am now. I signed up for a half marathon that I ran and finished in March. Overcome with emotion at my accomplishment I knew the time had come. June 2016 I ran my next race feeling much stronger and confident than in March. Over the next few months leading up to the NYC Marathon I have several races that I am currently training for. 

I am looking for your support in raising funds to support not only my dream of running 26.2 miles in November but also for the CJ Foundation for SIDS as they pursue their research endeavors to find the cause of SIDS and seek treatment and a cure. 

I am running with tens of thousands of individuals all with inspiring stories and reasons they wish to conquer 26.2 miles. Please support me by donating $10 or any amount of your choosing to bring more awareness to SIDS and so that I too may run in honor and support of the CJ Foundation. 

In health,

Ericka Johnson
