Thank you for stopping by my fundraising page!
My Aunt Anne got me into distance running when she asked me a few years back if I wanted to do a half marathon with her. We’ve trained for a few running races and triathlons together while living in different states and have come to enjoy them together as a team. When she told me she had signed up for her first marathon, I couldn’t help but join in.
My aunt is not only my training buddy for races, but she is also a great inspiration to me in everyday life. She is a survivor of melanoma, breast cancer, and thyroid cancer, but that is not what defines her. She is an adventurer at heart-always willing to seek out travel and new experiences. She is dedicated to making a difference in the lives of others- particularly her friends, family, co-workers, and her “little sister” through the Big Brothers Big Sisters Organization. She’s a storyteller, a comedian, and a foodie (who doesn’t like to bond over food?). My sidekick is one tough cookie, and she is my example and motivation for completing this race!
I will be moving to Chicago this summer and can’t wait to learn the city by foot as I complete my very first marathon!
