On May 3, I will be running Rock the Ridge, a 50 mile ultra-marathon. I feel truly blessed to be able to test my body, mind and spirit in this ultimate challenge. I run for me and for those whose minds and bodies are not able. I run for my newborn niece Alexis Kathryn, for my two beautiful girls, may they grow to be strong woman, and I run for me.
Rock The Ridge is set in the natural beauty of the Mohonk Preserve, a vast, non-profit nature preserve situated in the mid-Hudson Valley of New York State. The course winds along beautiful carriage trails, through the forests and across the magnificent ridgelines of the Preserve, lands which The Nature Conservancy has described as “one of Earth's last great places.” It is an unbelievable place to test the limits of one's body and feel truly alive!
Rock the Ridge is also a fundraising event, supporting a great cause: preserving our natural environment. Funds raised will go to the Mohonk Preserve in support of its mission to safeguard the land of the Shawangunk Ridge and encourage people to experience nature.
Please consider making a donation to support my run in honor of my niece Alexis Kathryn, may she continue to grow big and strong and run along side me one day.
Thanks and please know that I will keep you in my heart as I push my body to the limit and achieve this goal.
