Stuff About Me:

Neutral. Driven. Strong.


My first attempt at the Bank of America Chicago Marathon in 2011 was a complete failure--I didn’t show up for fear of not completing it. I signed up again in 2012, and again with the fear of not finishing, I ran out of gas at the half-way point. Not willing to give up in 2013, I came back and with some fear in me, I pushed myself to the finish line. So, in 2014 I came back and finished with a better than anticipated time. This year, in 2015, I lost all fear and I can’t wait to face the challenge that once dominated me in October.

Latinos Progresando’s executive director, Luis Gutierrez is a personal friend of mine. We grew up on the same block and attended the same school during our grammar school years. His work speaks volumes, and the future is full of opportunities for the organization and what they have yet to accomplish. For these reasons, I chose to #Run4Latinos.
