I am a mom & a runner, hear me roar!  See more
teri kirksey


I began running in 1997 as a means of physical fitness. At the time and for several years to follow, fitness was my main motivation, never logging more than maybe 15 miles a week. As with many things in life, my fitness was put on the back burner as I embraced my child rearing years. It was in the spring of 2010 that I began to run again and a newfound passion developed. Over the past couple of years, I’ve competed in several different races: triathlons, a 5K, a 10K, a half-marathon (13.2 miles), and in February of 2012 I completed my first marathon (26.2 miles). I am not setting any records with my speed, but I have been fortunate enough to achieve every race goal I have set for myself. Each and every time I toe-up to the start line, I am overcome with God’s goodness towards me. I run just because I enjoy it and want to do it. I am not battling any life crisis or seriously ill children or spouse, and I feel very blessed! With this in mind, I would like to share my latest venture with you…
I have made a huge commitment. I am training to run the ING New York City Marathon November 4, 2012 as a St. Jude Hero. While I have been blessed with three healthy children, there are many parents whose children are facing a host of life threatening diseases like cancer, sickle cell disease, or genetic disorders. St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital has treated children from all 50 states and around the world. As a St. Jude Hero, my fundraising efforts will directly support the work of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital to find cures and save the lives of children fighting cancer and other deadly diseases. I am asking for your help!
