Passionate about sports! Less than 2 years ago I decided to challenge myself with something new: running. After running my first half marathon a few months later in October 2013 and completely disliking the experience; I thought I'd stick with short distance and enjoy the Central Park views... But only until a few of my close friends, involved with Minds Matter, pushed me to run another half marathon but this time actually prepare for it. I love to eat so it didn't sound like a bad idea to push my runs an extra couple miles and not feel as guilty about my weekend fattening brunch meals... The more I ran the more I got into it. Central Park became just one of the landmarks I enjoyed running around in NYC. A year later I completed my 1st Marathon! Still have a lot to learn about this sport but I am commiting myself to keep pushing.
Another thing I am passionate about are SMILES. If I get a smile out of everyone I cross paths with, I am a happy camper. And the more I learn about Minds Matter the more I understand the meaning they put behind these young adults' smiles by opening the doors to a bigger and better chance for a brighter future; by helping "accomplished high school students from low-income families by broadening their dreams and preparing them for college success".
So the idea of putting the two together is just a perfect mix to me. Please help me fundraise for http://mindsmatter.org as I run this coming NYC Half Marathon on March 15th, 2015.
