My story is simple. I run because I can. I was never a great athlete, although no one could ever tell me that. I tried out for team sports like soccer, but never made the cut. One day my older brother said, “Hey Terri, come run with me.” He took me on a seven mile course which I ran with ease. After that, I joined the track team and the rest is history. Running is definitely my verb!
Now don’t get me wrong, I am not fast. But I have stamina. I run because it makes me strong. I run because it makes me determined. I run because I can help support great causes like education for children, research for cancer, and support for girl’s athletics.
Now you can help support Women’s Sports Foundation whose mission is to advance the lives of women and girls through sports and physical activities. Please show your support by donating. No amount is too small, or too large! Help me reach the $5,000 mark!
Thanks for your support and watch me run the New York City Marathon!
