Rachel Berger

THE STORY:

My running journey began in 2000, when I had the privilege of escorting a dear friend to the NYC Marathon Expo.  She stayed with me that night and we prepped her for the big race. I then chaperoned her family around town to various viewing spots, and even wound up running the last 3 miles with her.   I think I was more sore than she was the next day!  While I played sports growing up, I had never trained or competed in any running event.  But that soon changed.

 

By 2003 I had earned my entry into the NYC Marathon and had such a positive experience.  I have since run NYC 3 additional times – in 2008 and 2010 (the years after each of my children were born) and again in 2013.  I can’t imagine running 26.2 miles anywhere else – the energy of the crowds along the NYC route is magical.

 

My prior marathon endeavors were purely selfish – I enjoyed the commitment to a goal, the runs provided precious “me” time away from the juggles of family and work obligations, and frankly I just ran because I could.  What a luxury.

 

This year, as a member of the Run4Brad team, I will truly be running with my heart – not just my legs.   Along with this amazing team of runners, I am proud to raise funds for robotics therapy and raise awareness for traumatic brain injuries and/or AVMs.  I know this run will be fueled by the strength, spirit and determination epitomized the Bermans.
