I'm an ex 320 lb chicken wing eating machine that decided that a 14th helping wasn't worth missing my children grow up! I bought some walking shoes (then running shoes) and began working off the pounds. With the support of my family and shaming of my peers, 1 mile became 5k, and so on..
After one year I shed 100 lbs ( or a good size eight grader) and completed the Chicago Marathon. Since, I've completed the Marine Corps & Palm Beach Marathons. I've run on 3 continents with my son and fellow marathoner Christian, who will be running Boston with me!
I plan to use the years I've bought back loving my family, watching Monty Python, cheering on the Florida Gators, volunteering at my church and completing the Abbot Major Marathon series and encouraging all my loved ones to join me for a walk... or a run!
I'm PROUD to be a part of Boston Debate League! I've watched as debate has been an integral part of my son's life- in hIgh school, on the national, and international stage. It has helped shape him into the young man I am so proud of-that seeks the truth, listens to both sides of the issue and always puts people first. Debate was a tool that helped him shape, and articulate, his humanity. Even now, as he ends a year teaching debate to high schoolers in Beijing and returns to law school at Berkeley, debate has had a tremendous impact on his life and the lives he has touched. I've been fortunate to support debate by volunteering over the last decade.
Boston Debate League uses debate to create critical thinkers and leaders for tomorrow. I am honored to run that race with them-literally and figuratively!
