BENEFITING: DREAMFAR HIGH SCHOOL MARATHON
ORGANIZER: DREAMFAR HIGH SCHOOL MARATHON
EVENT DATE: May 03, 2015
If you don't know much about me, you probably know at least one thing. I like to run, no, I LOVE to run! I was a cross-country runner in high school, and continued to run off and on over the years as a way to stay fit. But it wasn't until the last few years that I found my passion for it.
In the last few years running has taught me more about myself, life, and how to live it than I've learned in all the years before. It has opened my eyes to my own potential, taught me that it's ok to be afraid and to overcome, that pain is temporary, that hard work and determination will get you to your goals and beyond. It has made me stronger and healthier mentally, physically, and spiritually. Running has given me an ever growing family.
I joined the Dreamfar team this year as a mentor to high school students training to run the Providence Marathon on May 3rd. I hope to be able to share with the students all of the amazing gifts I have received from my sport. I hope to see the same look of joy on their faces at the finish line as you see on mine after I just qualified for Boston.
We would appreciate your support as we train for "26.2 Together"!
