BENEFITING: OKLAHOMA CITY NATIONAL MEMORIAL FOUNDATION
EVENT: Oklahoma City Marathon 2013
EVENT DATE: Apr 28, 2013
April 19th,1995- I was an eighth grader in Mrs. Battles class when we got wind of the catastrophic event that would forever change so many lives. I'll never forget that day, or that week, or that month, or that year. What a tragic chain of events!!!
In the midst of it all, it's great to see how far Oklahoma has come....So proud :)
The Oklahoma City Memorial receive their funds through donation in order to maintain the memorial.Any amount raised to help out OKC will be great!! that's why I created this page so that you can donate to such a wonderful cause.
No matter what, I'll forever consider myself "tied to the mission."
I live in a suburb of Austin, TX and this is my very first marathon and I would not have chosen any other place to run it than here. This is home. I love Oklahoma.
Oklahoma is the state where I was born and raised, and I wanted my first marathon to be at home. My family will be there with me through it all, and I know the love and support that they always show me, so it was kind of a no-brainer.. My daughter, my husband, my mother, my brother, and my fave cousin Kass (sorry to the rest of you) and my entire family are my driving force for this race. I want to show them in particular that you can do anything to change your life or the circumstances in your life, whether temporary or permanent. Pick a goal and stick to it, no matter the size.
It's been a little over 2 years and 200 1bs. ago that I started out just walking around the block. A mere 6 tenths of a mile that left me so winded and beat. I'm now 45+ lbs. lighter and on the horizon of a marathon!! This is my testimony, and I want to tell my family and the world.
