I ran my first marathon in May in Burlington VT, I never ever thought I would run a full but over the past few years I chose one big race a year to train for. 26&2 was next on the list. Running Burlington was amazing, the support of the city got me through the race and I felt incredible. A few days later a friend, who helps run Grassroots, asked if I wanted to run NY for their team and I think I actually scoffed a little and said "uh no....I'm done for the year". I started reading about the NYC marathon and peoples experiences and I started to change my mind. Then I started reading about Grassroots Soccer and that was it...I had said I would sleep on the decision but had made up my mind before the next day that I would be running. I am so proud to be part of this amazing organization that provides the guidence in helping adolecents make more informed decisions about their health and future.
I was very active growing up and played on numerous sports teams, the mentorship that I had and the role models I had to look up to helped get me through the tough and awkward stages of life. I am a firm believer in team sports and people of all ages staying active. This program has really made such an impression on me such a short time and I hope that by joining and running for the cause I can help spread the word of Grassroot Soccer.
Thanks for reading!
