I started running with my mom while I was home from college one summer, and fell in love with the view we ran to overlooking the San Francisco Bay Area. Since then, I've jogged in Kingston's Emancipation Park (where budding Olympians would run along side me for kicks), in Costa Rica, Bogotá, and Brooklyn. I'm not a great jogger. I just like the views my legs can take me to.
The first race I ever took part in was the Bay to Breakers, where I performed Shakespeare with my middle school drama class while we walked the San Francisco hills. From there, I worked up to a half marathon, the most memorable being in my hometown of Oakland in 2011, where I was showered with local love around every corner. (see pic)
This will be my first ever marathon, and my first time raising such a great sum of money for a cause I believe in. I'd be lying if I said I'm not scared about the challenge both entail. Any support you can give will help me reach my goal, which is to raise $3000 for WITNESS and not collapse and die like Pheidippides (the Greek messenger and first ever marathon runner). Thank you!
