THE STORY:

Dear Friends and Family, This particular marathon journey is of tender importance to me. Until now, I've often been very private and stoic about my personal struggle with Endometriosis. I have suffered from acute abdominal and pelvic pain for as long as I could remember. 

In 2012, after a regular GYN visit, I was diagnosed with Endometriosis and multiple ovarian cysts. I had surgery for the first time on March 25, 2013 to remove endometrial tissue, and left the OR with a Stage 4 diagnosis. The very next day, my mother unexpectedly passed away. Needless to say, I endured a grueling post-operative infection, and finally left the hospital 1 full month later. 

Everything in my life completely changed after this. Plans and goals derailed. Overcome with grief and loss, the only thing that felt achievable in a day- was to move my body- and so I began to run. A half mile was the furthest I could reach on my first few runs. 10 months later, I ran the NYC Marathon for the first time. I recently completed my 7th marathon in March. 

Running has become something I do for so many reasons, but for now, I yearn for other women that suffer from this disease to hear my story. Running has lessened the pain of Endometriosis significantly. It has given me power in a powerless situation. It inspires me, teaches me patience/humbleness, and has frankly saved my life. Tragedy has become beauty. It has taught me to love my body, despite its flaws and struggles. Lastly, it has bestowed upon me a deeper gratefulness and love for those around me. 

Please help me raise money for this terribly underfunded and understudied disease. 

And as always, Run On.
