Stuff About Me:

I've never run long distances before my marathon training started (well, nothing over about 5 miles) so this has been one of the most challenging experiences of my life. Each mile still feels like an acheivement. And this weekend I'm doing the first 20 mile run of my life. And yes, I'm totally scared but I believe in myself and that's what Girls on the Run is all about and that's why I'm running the marathon for GOTR.

Girls on the Run is the most inspirational program and since I created 2 fundraising films for them in the past 2 years I thought this would be the perfect cause to run for. GOTR helps young girls build self-esteem through confidence building lessons they practice while running after school. 

All the procedes donated to my run for GOTR will go to this charity. I'm proud to be a girl on the run and hope you will support my goal to complete the Chicago Marathon.

Peace and love, Katy
