I am a 45 year old homemaker, going to school part-time at Hunter College studying Geography, Geology and Italian. My husband David and I celebrated our 12th wedding anniversary on June 12th. We are parents to our wonderful and curious daughter, Lulu, who we adopted from China on November 6, 2006 (it'll be exactly five years on the day of the marathon). She was 11 months old when we adopted her.
I have always been health and fitness conscious. I am a certified yoga instructor and exercise everyday. I am also a gluten free vegan...so no pasta for me before the Marathon. I'll be carbo-loading with quinoa and brown rice!
Last but not least, we have three incredibly loving miniature dachshunds. They are very fun and playful.
I selected the NYAWC to run for because it seems a wonderful way to honor the heritage of my daughter. Supporting the Asian community is or paramount importance to our family.
I am pretty certain I can finish the marathon because I ran the 2007 NYC Marathon without training for it at all. My time wasn't impressive (5:30), but the fact that I finished without training was. This time I do plan to train and hope to not only finish but do so with a better time. My goal is 4:00...or less.
It is a great honor to represent the NYAWC in the NYC Marathon. When I ran in 2007 I did not do so for a charity. The ability to raise funds and awareness for a cause that is so special has already resonated in me. I look forward to doing so every year.
