THE STORY:

Five years ago I decided to run the Chicago Marathon. I took a liking to running my Junior year of high school, but had never run more than three miles at a time. I was such a nervous wreck signing up for the marathon, so I decided that I needed some extra motivation. I chose to run for a charity very dear to my heart, Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation. 

My sister Audrey was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes at the age of three. As of now, there is no cure for Juvenile Diabetes. She manages her diabetes by testing her blood sugar mulitple times a day and she has an insulin pump. She will have to deal with this autoimmune disease for the rest of her life. 

I ended up raising nearly $2,000 for JDRF while training for Chicago. My whole goal was just to finish the marathon. It wasn't pretty, but I finished. It felt great and the fact that I had raised money for such wonderful charity only added to how amazing the whole experience was. 

Fast forward five years and here I am. I had sworn to myself that I would never run another marathon! However, last year I kept having this little voice inside my head saying that I was ready for another challenge. I knew the TCS New York Marathon was my next race. So, I signed up to run through JDRF and have a goal of raising $3,500! The money I raise will go towards research for finding a cure and public education.  I'm asking all my family and friends, and even strangers, to help me reach this goal. Audrey is one of the strongest people I've ever known and all type 1 diabetics deserve to see a cure in their lifetime. Thanks for stopping by my donation page!
