Over the past few years I have developed a relationship with running that has been like no other relationship I have had with actual person. Running has allowed me to learn more about myself then all of the other years combined. Running has given the strength to make all sorts of changes in my life that I never had before. Running has allowed me to love myself both physically and emotionally. Running has showed me that I can do anything I want if I put forward the effort.
I am excited to run the Chicago Marathon this fall as my first ever marathon. It will be a challenging and rewarding experience that I will be able to hold on to for a lifetime. I am even more so excited that I will be running for Girls on the Run Chicago. "Girls on the Run is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization whose mission is to inspire girls to be healthy and confident. Using a fun, experience-based after-school curriculum which creatively integrates running, the innovative program combines training for a 5k event with interactive lessons that encourage positive emotional, social, mental and physical development."
I want to be able to help the young women learn the same things that I have learned from running! Please help support these girls of Chicago!
