The night before I agreed to run the 2016 NYC Marathon, my first marathon, I told a group of people I have no interest in running a marathon. "13.1 is my thing!" The next day I got an email. An email from Nicole saying they'd like me to be on the Outrun38 NYC 26.2 team, and I said yes. What?!
How could I change my mind in less than 24 hours? It's easy. Being invited to run for an awesome charity that shares many of the same views and outlooks on life and in fighting cystic fibrosis is why I said yes.
Liz has been an inspiration to me for many years. Sometimes when I don't feel like running (which is not very often) I'll channel her and the Outrun crew and think "My lungs need it. Get off your booty and go!"
I'm so pumped to run my first full with Outrun38. Together we will outrun cystic fibrosis for good!
