The last 2 years, I have been lucky enough to coach 25 Girls on the Run: 3rd – 5th graders from Highland Park who spent their time in the after-school program learning about how to make good decisions and friendships, stand up to bullies, and give back to the community. At the end of every session, we ran and trained for the culminating event: Running a 5K through Somerville, NJ!
More information on this great organization can be found here: http://www.gotrcnj.org/
I want to continue inspiring these girls and motivating them to be the best they can be… and push myself along the way. I am training for a 70.3 Half Iron Man(1.2 mile swim, 56 mile bike, 13.1 mile run) to compete in Maine in August and will be finishing my 2018 racing season with the Chicago Marathon! Any funds that I raise will directly support the GOTR organization and help bring this worthwhile program to schools and areas that might not be able to afford it right now.
Thank you in advance and looking forward to the upcoming seasons of training and coaching!
