I am incredibly excited to be running the Austin Half Marathon on behalf of Out Youth and Austin Gives Miles.
Founded in 1990, Out Youth serves the Central Texas LGBTQ+ youth and ally community. They offer a variety of resources and services, foremost of which is providing a safe space for LGBTQ+ youth to come together, receive support, and make friends who understand who they are.
I started running in 2012, and for some reason I haven't stopped yet. This will be my third half marathon, and while I can't guarantee it will be my fastest, I can promise it will be my sparkliest.
