CROWDRISING SINCE: Jun 11, 2012
Stuff About Me:

My name is Dawn and I am loving this season of my life! I am one of the pastors at Faith Community Church in West Covina, California where I have been on staff for 25 years. I tell people I was 12 when they hired me because I couldn't possibly be as old as working 25 years in one place makes me! I love my job, work with the most incredible people and feel extremely blessed with the opportunities God has placed in my hand.

In 2006 twelve of my friends and I decided to go after one of our bucket list items. We decided to run (or should I say complete) a marathon. The crazy thing was they all looked to me to put a training plan together to get us to the finish line. I didn't know a thing about long distance running! My solution? I bought Marathon, You Can Do It by Jeff Galloway and stayed a chapter ahead of them at all times. Somehow we all finished. Along the way we learned a lot about ourselves, discovered a strong correlation between training and our spiritual lives and fell in love with endurance running. The next year I invited everyone in my church who wanted to do a marathon to join us, but I added one more thing. We would do this marathon on behalf of a cause that was very close to the heart of my church--raising awareness and funding to combat human trafficking. One year of church marathon teams turned into three years and over the course of time we trained around 300 people to complete a full or half marathon while raising over $110,000 for A21, the organization we support in their fight against human trafficking.

During those years of organizing our church team I discovered that I really loved trailrunning and that right outside my door were amazing places to run in the San Gabriel Mountains. So now at heart, I am a trailrunner and will avoid asphalt any chance I get. In 2011 I decided to run my first ultra marathon, Shadow of the Giants, and jumped into the world of triathlons, completing a Bonelli sprint distance and an all women's half ironman called Barbs Race. I am not fast and I am not an expert, but I am having a lot of fun.

One last thing. Besides training with friends, I can often be found running with my four legged training partner, Jake.
