Second grade teaching, running enthusiast, who loves high-fives and funfetti cake!
Why I run is a question I’m often asked and a question I ask other runners too. I find it fascinating and intriguing to discover the many and sometimes complex reasons why people run. In today’s increasingly time consuming and fast moving society, why would anyone want to run with an already crowded social and work calendar?
As runners, we know there’s something special about our state of mind when we run, and the effect on our mood and our daily lives. I can only speak for myself why I run, but like many others my reasons are various, complex and intertwined. When my calendar is bursting at the seams, my head is spinng, and I am feeling overwhelmed, running has been my escape. What I get from running mentally and emotionally has changed my life. As my journey continues it steadily brings me clarity and serenity everytime I lace up my sneakers. It's MY time.
Usually, I run for myself... Not anymore.
It is an honor to be chosen to be running this year’s Boston Marathon for the David Ortiz Children’s Fund! Please consider donating in support of my run and supporting children in New England and the Dominican Republic who do not have access to the critical pediatric services they need. Just remember every penny matters! <3>
