EVENT DATE: Apr 18, 2016
I'm never sure what to write in these bios. I love to run.....its that simple! This will be my FIRST BOSTON MARATHON. WOOT!! I like to run alone sometimes, but I really like to run with my groups: the #NatickRunners and the @Tri_State_Runners. The sport has provided me with some great challenges, and provided some great friends. Even more than running, I enjoy giving back to programs that help empower and educate our youth. I believe the community farm provides an excellent opportunity to teach our youth these important core values: work ethic, teaming, taking care of our environment, learning where our food comes from. I look forward to being part of the Hoofin' It Team 2016!!
