I am a mother, a wife, a lawyer, and an athlete in my spare time. I have gotten so much from my athletic endeavors, including triathlon, running marathons, and weightlifting. People always ask me how I find the time to fit exercise in -- especially when I was going to law school for four years at night. I always say, there is no way I could ever have managed my insane schedule without sport, running in particular. As the years go by, I encounter more injuries, more unexpected wrenches in my optimal athletic engine. Yet, each year, I recognize how lucky I am to have this healthy mortal coil in which to move, run, hobble, walk, limp. I am grateful for my health, and for my family's health.
I feel driven to give back to running after it has done so much for me. In the last few years, I have begun upping my game in terms of giving back. I volunteer to help at races in different ways: as a timer, a course marshal, a pacer, or, offering first aid on the course, through Race Guards. I also, occasionally, raise money to help charities I believe in. In 2015, I raised money for Spaulding Rehab as part of their charity Falmouth Road Race Team. Three different years, I raised money for Wounded Warriors cycling events. And now, I am raising money for Cal's Angels, a Chicago-based nonprofit providing financial support and granting wishes to children with cancer, and their families. Please help me support the good work of Cal's Angels by donating to my page today!
