THE STORY:

Running the New York City Marathon has been on my “bucket list” ever since I moved to New York for college in 2003. I still remember my first time watching the marathon- feeling the incredible energy of thousands of people coming together for this amazing event immediately drew me in. Watching the marathon became an annual tradition, one that never failed to inspire and impress me.

When I first arrived in New York and started college at Barnard, I was not what one would describe as a fit or healthy person. I grew up as an overweight child, and was always intimidated by organized sports and physical activity. In college, I finally decided that I would no longer let my fears prevent me from reaching my full potential- and this included my physical potential. I changed my eating habits, started going to the gym regularly, and discovered that I loved running. Running in New York City became a regular part of my experience of living there, and is still my favorite way to take in the sights and sounds of the city. In 2006, I celebrated my 21st birthday by coming back to my home state of Minnesota to run the Twin Cities Marathon, and in 2009, I ran the Queens Half Marathon. Last year, my husband and I moved from New York back to Minnesota, where I’ve continued to pursue my running goals through several half marathons.

College was also where I discovered another passion: education and working with young people. In my junior year of college, I switched gears from a pre-law track to the school’s education program. After graduating, I taught sixth grade in New York for three years before moving back to Minnesota, where I currently teach at a start-up charter school that serves primarily low-income students in North Minneapolis. 

I am SO excited to be running the New York City Marathon, and am thrilled to be running on behalf of Harlem RBI, an organization that embodies two of my greatest passions: educating and empowering young people to reach their full potential; and physical health and fitness. Coming back to my favorite city in the world, to run the best race in the world on behalf of an amazing organization, will truly be a dream come true!
