THE STORY:

For me, and for so many of us, cancer hits way too close to home. When I started running a year and a half ago, I had no intention of ever entering a race, let alone a half marathon. It was CLHM that inspired me to take my running to the next level last winter and my experience there and the support that I got from so many loved ones made me promise myself that I would always run for this amazing cause, so long as I am healthy and able. I hope to honor someone special in my life each time that I do, and that is why I chose my dear friend Cristy Beemer who kicked breast cancer's butt when she never should have had to and dedicated my first race to her last year.

This year, I will run to honor my two grandmothers, Jennie Schleiermacher and Vivian Carlson, who each lost their battle with cancer too soon, when they each had many more years that they should have lived.
This charity and this event helps people who are close to home and is in a place that is close to where I grew up. Knowing that any funds I can raise will directly help patients who are fighting their hardest, right here where we live, is motivating and humbling. I will push through the winter training runs this year knowing that it will end in a race where everyone is kind, friendly, and connected because of this perfectly directed race. This event is surrounded by the most positive and touching vibe I've ever felt in real life. Thank you for supporting me in my second time around this course. No amount is too small, every dollar counts, and every vote of confidence will push me through the most difficult miles.
