THE STORY:

Thank you for visiting my page! 

Last September, I completed by first Half Marathon (which was actually my third race of any kind. ever.) and had a blast. I'm now training for the Pittsburgh Half and am determined to beat my time (shooting for under 1:50)! 

The main factor for me crossing that first finish line, or even running in the race at all, has been the support of awesome running buddies. Before joining the North Boroughs YMCA, I would never have considered myself a runner. I bet many of you reading this are still shocked that running has become my hobby of choice! 

In addition to being a running newbie, I was also a newcomer to the neighborhood. I had moved all the way across a river, so I knew few people in the area. This all changed when I joined the local YMCA. In the past year, the YMCA and our running group have become a huge part of my life. The YMCA has made me faster, stronger, more inspired, and most importantly, more connected to my community. I have gained wonderful friends and new motivation to maintain an active lifestyle. 

As a way to give back to the Y and ensure that it continues to serve this community, I recently became the newest volunteer member of the North Borough's Board. I am so excited to play a role in an organization that does so many things in my community - running youth programs, promoting healthy living, supporting seniors, and encouraging folks like me to build relationships as well as strong muscles. 

On May 3, I will be running 13.1 miles through Pittsburgh both in support of and because of my local YMCA. I ask you to please consider helping me towards my goal to raise $1000 for the North Boroughs branch. These funds helps us continue to improve our facilities, offer more programs, and ensure that everyone has access to these resources.  

Thank you so much for your support!
