Ever since I started running to lose weight (60lbs and counting) it has been my dream to run the NYC Marathon. In the spring of 2015, I finally decided to pull the trigger. I will be running for a great organization called Achilles International. Achilles provides athletes with disabilities, specifically children and war veterans, with a community of support so that they may reach their running goals. Over the last 4 years I have had the pleasure of working closely with its founder, Dick Traum, on the board of a small grant foundation. Dick is particularly inspirational as he was the first amputee to run the NYC Marathon. I have witnessed first hand the great work his organziation does helping those whose dream it is to get out and run no matter what challenges they may face.
