Dear Friends and Family, T…
Dear Friends and Family,

Thank you! From the bottom of my heart, THANK YOU! Each and every donation from each and every one of you means so much to me. Thanks to the material and financial donations, we raised $2690 and I am in the Top 3 GOTR fundraisers -- and Girls on the Run raised more money than any other Chicago Marathon charity with a total of $482,922!! WOW!! Look at what you have been a part of! Amazing!! Since this money goes directly to scholarships, girls in St. Louis, Chicago, and in other communities across the country will not be turned away from participating in this life-changing program.

This campaign is coming to a close. The marathon has been run -- and it was awesome, agonizing, amazing, and painful. The city of Chicago puts on quite a party and I have never experienced anything quite like it.

The race was tough. I came up against pain and doubt like I have never experienced before. The last few miles were slow and I was sad that I fell off my pace and wasn't able to finish the race in the time/way I had hoped. But... I can't tell you how many times I just wanted to QUIT. I didn't. I ran that last mile as fast as I could muster and I crossed that finish line a changed person. I always respected the marathon -- but, I am now completely humbled before it.

Thank you again for your personal support as well. Knowing that so many people I love were pulling for me meant so much. I didn't want to let you all down.

I already have another marathon on the calendar for the spring - and hope to return to Chicago (or NYC) next fall with the Girls on the Run SoleMates team. I am so proud to be on a team with such a wonderful group of amazing people. I hope you will support Girls on the Run again in the future.

I send each and every one of you much love and gratitude. You are all so special to me. And if I could give words of advice after all of this? Do something that you once thought impossible. Do something that scares you. No matter what it is, find it.... and do it with all of your body, spirit, mind, and soul. It will change your life in amazing ways. Life your life on fire.... much love to you all. xo

Hello Everyone!! I have trie…
Hello Everyone!! I have tried to send out individual thank you notes for every single donation, and I hope I haven't left anyone out. Please forgive me if I have.

I wanted to send a mass THANK YOU to everyone for your support of this campaign. I reached my goal today of $2620 -- and every single dollar from every single one of you got me there. This amount will sponsor a year of programming at a low-income school. GOTR never turns a girl away due to inability to pay. So, your donation has helped to bring this amazing program to many.

I will send out a mass email again (and post on Facebook) when I do the raffle drawing. I am waiting to see when the campaign closes and will determine a good raffle day.

Thank you again from the bottom of my heart. This process has been amazing -- and I am excited to carry your support with me to Chicago in 3 weeks!!
