My name is Jeffrey Golds, and this is my first marathon! I moved to Chicago a year ago, after living in Brooklyn, and I've been really excited to be able to jog along the lake shore and walk through the zoo every weekend. While there, I love visiting my favorite animals, the polar bear and grey seal. Like them, I love swimming, so I'm really glad to be in a city where there are beaches within walking distance of my home!
I've only been running for a couple of years, and I did my first race, an 8k, on St. Patrick's day. The marathon is a big challenge for me, but I'm really excited to do it and raise money for the zoo!
