THE STORY:

 I started running competitively 9 years ago  I was instantly hooked! I run with  the Bayou City Road Runners, a  running club in Houston,  I love running with this group.   Runners are some of the finest people I know.  In Houston everyone I run with is totally willing to act as my guide help me get water or gatoraide during races. etc.   Turns out the Boston running community is equally as amazing.  My first Boston was in 2013.  I finished 2nd in the Vi division but, had no idea I had actually placed.  I ran a 3.21.46     It was an unforgetable day for the wrong reasons.   Luckily 2014 , 2015 and 2016,2017 were great years.  I placed 1st in 2014  2nd in 2015 ,  and 1st in 2016& 2017.   In 2014 & 2016 I placed 1st at  the VI national championship at the CIM (California International Marathon). I was the 1st place female in the inaugural year of the Chevron Houston marathon Vi division in 2016  again in 2017. In the Chevron Houston marathon in 2014 I ran a 3.16.50 and placed 3rd in my 45-49 age group.  That was another suprise.   Running has given me the opportunity to give back  to my community and to inspire others. I am the Past President of BCRR and love to run with newer runners and encourge them to continue in this great sport.     I started running with Team with a vision in 2015.  TWAV is an amazing group.  Everyone from the employees , volunteers, guides and runners are inspiring.   They make me feel like I could give more,volunteer more, work harder and be a kinder person.  TWAV really makes a difference in peoples lives including mine.   I often think  I am lucky to have this visual impairment. I don't have to drive, I cannot see most bugs ,often I cannot distinguish what race a person is, and everyone is good looking, I had an amazing teacher throughout my school carreer due to my visual impairment.   and I have had the opportunity to run with twav.       I'm thrilled to be joining my teammates in April 2018 in Hopkinton and excited to be running with Team With A Vision again!  Not only do we run but, we help fundraise for MABV.  Not every VI person is as loucky as I am and MABV is there to help them read mail, grocery shop etc. etc.  .
