THE STORY:

The first thing you should know about me: no, that is unfortunately NOT my dog in my profile picture! That's Chewie, my friend Carolynn's dog, and we had just run ten miles (with Carolynn riding a fat-tire mountain bike) on a path in Vermont last fall; we wore the orange vests so that hunters wouldn't shoot at us and so that we wouldn't look too tasty to any mountain lions we happened upon. It was probably the longest run I did before running the Philly Half in November, and I'm looking forward to more long runs just like it this fall as I get ready for the New York City marathon! Just with fewer Chewies, orange vests, and (unseen) mountain lions. 

Other than the fact that I post pictures of myself with other people's dogs, you should know that I'm 35 and work as a teacher and college-access counselor at a high school in Crown Heights, and that I've been in the college-access--which essentially means that I work with first-generation students-- field for eight years here in New York City. The Robin Hood Foundation donated money for the building that houses my school, Uncommon Charter High School, and Achievement First Brooklyn High School, and the foundation also supports many other programs--from community-based organizations to food banks--that my students have benefited from over the years, and I'm super excited to be raising money for them as I train for the 2016 New York City Marathon. This will be my fifth marathon, and my goal is to beat my previous PR (3:56 in the 2012 Philly Marathon), even if only by a few seconds! 

I'm hoping to post regular updates about my training as well as highlight some of the awesome work that the Robin Hood Foundation does in fighting poverty in New York City, and once I know how I will be doing that, I'll let you know. So stay tuned, and THANK YOU for your support!
