Thank you for visiting my page. Just a little bit about me. I began running in 2002. I started out running 2 days per week at 5am as a way to connect with a neighbor and schedule me time. I joined a formal running group and ran my first 4 mile run on Thanksgiving Day in 2011. Two years later with several 1/2 marathons under my belt, I've discovered that running is a wonderful way to relieve stress, maintain a healthy and fit lifestyle and most importantly network or what I term "Connect on the Run". “Connecting on the Run” involves inviting strangers and friends in the neighborhood to join me for a run, while traveling for work or on vacation. Running has been such a rewarding experience for me. So, as I turn 50, I would like young girls to experience the benefits of running by raising funds for Girls on the Run. GOTR is a transformational physical activity based positive youth development program for girls in 3rd-8th grade. GOTR teaches life skills through dynamic, interactive lessons and running games. The program culminates with the girls being physically and emotionally prepared to complete a celebratory 5k running event. The goal of the program is to unleash confidence through accomplishment while establishing a lifetime appreciation of health and fitness... Here's where I need your support. I am planning to raise funds for GOTR by hitting the asphalt and running 26.2 miles in the Chicago Marathon in October. To guarantee entry into this popular race, I’ve agreed to raise a minimum of $1,000 to help a phenomenal organization. Please consider helping me celebrate my 50th birthday and a wonderful cause. Thank you for your consideration.
