Thank you for supporting Hope For The Warriors on my behalf as I tackle the 2014 TCS NYC Marathon!

A little about this runner: I'm a native South Dakota farm/ranch girl that came to the big city 11 years ago. I come from a military family and was raised with a father who served 4 years active (1 yr in Vietnam as a helicopter pilot) & 21 years as an officer for the South Dakota National Guard -retired as Brigade Commander rank of Full Bird Colonel. The exposure to military life and the mission of the organization is what led me to choose this team.

11 years ago I watched my first ING NYC Marathon and was so inspired by the people I saw that I said "Someday" I would attempt this feat. 4 years ago I started running in order to lose weight and drive myself towards a healthier lifestyle. 2 months ago I came to the realization that maybe I could actually run this marathon.

From the bottom of my heart I really appreciate any support and well wishes towards this amazing adventure.

Thank you for supporting Hope For The Warriors. Your contribution is greatly appreciated.
