EVENT: 2017 TCS NEW YORK CITY MARATHON

Sarah de Val

THE STORY:

 I ran my last marathon in April of 2011. It was the Boston marathon, and it was one of the best running experiences of my life.  It was the year of my wedding , I was a lot younger, and a lot more care free - I had time to train whole heartedly. Fast forward 6 years, I am now married and a mom of a beautiful 4 year old daughter and handsome 16 month old boy. Life is crazy, and while I never gave up running completely, I just never found the time to dedicate to train for a marathon.

I have always wanted to run the New York Marathon and vowed to myself when I was pregnant with my son in 2015 that 2017 would be the year I would go for it. When I found out that UNICEF accepted my application to run in the marathon, I couldn't have been more thrilled or excited to not only have the chance to run in one of the biggest marathons in the world, but more importantly run for a charity that gives so much back to children who live in less fortunate countries than my family and I do.

UNICEF works in more than 190 countries and territories to save and protect the world's most vulnerable children by providing health care and immunizations, clean water and sanitation, nutrition, education, emergency relief and more. UNICEF takes proven, low-cost methods that save children’s lives and makes them available regardless of income, ethnicity or location. Forty years ago, UNICEF figured out that promoting simple, low-cost interventions like hand washing and breastfeeding could save millions of lives. Undaunted by war or geography, UNICEF delivers.

So while running this marathon is a test to prove that I can still find time to train and run 26.2 miles in one of the busiest and most stressful periods of my life, I'm also getting the wonderful opportunity to give back. By running the NYC Marathon, I want children living in third world countries or those that are living through natural disasters believe that they should never give up hope.  When my children are older I want them to understand that they are very lucky to live where they are now and to give back to those who deserve it the most.

Looking forward to starting my "hard core" training - I will keep you all updated of the trials and tribulations! Thank you all in advance for your support!
