Hello! This is my first marthon. When I watched my mom run marathons when I was younger I thought she was crazy. But now I've got the bug. This year my mom and I are running it together. Here's why I'm running the marathon with Samaritans:
1. I love to run.
2. It's a good escape from my senior thesis.
3. I'm a coxswain on the rowing team at princeton and I want my own training project while the rowers are working hard to get in shape for spring season.
4. Samaritans is an amazing organization and I would love to help people who are in danger of suicide realize that there are people who care!
