THE STORY:

If you had asked me a year ago to run a half marathon... I would have laughed in your face. At the time, I could barely run around the block! I knew though, that I needed a drastic lifestyle change, so I dove headfirst into fitness, and wow I dare to say, it saved my life. The past 8+ months have been dedicated to me, to finding myself and discovering what I am capable of accomplishing when I set my mind to it.

My four years in Oklahoma City, while completing an undergraduate degree at Oklahoma City University, have been filled with overwhelming obstacles, but have also encompassed some of the best moments of my life. This race marks the end of a life changing four years for me.

I am honored to make Oklahoma City's Memorial Marathon, my first race, because the city has become my home. Please consider donating to the Oklahoma City Memorial National Memorial and Museum, which remembers and honors the victims and survivors of April 19th, 1995.

Running has taught me how to get through life's most painful moments. This race benefits a cause that pays tribute to an extremely painful moment in history. I will honor the cause by running and I ask that YOU consider donating 1 dollar for each mile I intend to run (that's 13 miles!). I assure you I'll run all 13 of them :)
