I joined the Board of Directors of PowerPlay in November 2013, shortly after running my first marathon. When I heard that we were running the NYC 1/2 as an organizational fundraiser, I couldn't have been more excited! As anyone who has trained for a long distance race can tell you, it's sometimes tough to get motivated to lace up your skips on a cold, dark morning and head out for a long training run. However, when you know you're running to help empower and encourage young women, it somehow puts a bit of spring in your step. I am honored to be a part of such an inspiring organization, and am thrilled that I can run on its behalf to help show our young women that GIRLS ROCK and can do absolutely anything they put their mind to! Please help me in supporting this incredible organization!
