In 2012 I completed my first marathon, The San Francisco Marathon. I recall every moment of it, including standing in my starting corral and hearing the announcer talk about the "Worth the Hurt" challenge. I was impressed and couldn't believe someone could run two marathons back to back! After crossing my first marathon finish line, I fell in love and knew it would not be my last. Since then I've completed several more and running has become an important part of my life. Two years later, I am ready to take on the Worth the Hurt challenge in an effort to raise money for a cause I believe in. As a new resident of San Diego, I hear about all of the incredible things that The Challenged Athlete's Foundation, CAF, does and I feel compelled to contribute. Thank you for visiting my page and I appreciate any contributions!
