I'm a woman of few words.
I completed my first marathon April 2016 in Bend, Oregon and thought I'd never run another in my life. There was no cause to back, simply a personal mission to run 26.2 because it sounded cool, and we were all about the street cred. I mean... ;-). We did it, we completed it, and yet, the victory felt empty.
I wanted a redo.
An opportunity to pursue a marathon for something bigger than myself.
Something to make the pain worthwhile.
A mission to make an actual difference.
I'm honored to be running the NYC Marathon 2017 for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation this year. I don't have a family story, I don't have close friends suffering from the disease...and admittedly, it's not as personal for me as it is for some. That doesn't mean it isn't about to get personal...
Follow me as I begin to put faces to this disease, as I hear their stories...hopefully, this journey will bless your life as much as it's about to bless mine.
