My name is Michael Brandon Dennis, I’m in my senior year at Illinois Tech for Civil Engineering. I am currently training to run the Chicago Marathon for team vandercook in October. “But why?” some might ask, “Why run 26.2 miles?” The truth is I have always had the dream of running a marathon, because of how difficult of a task it is for me. I know this will push me to my limit and build my character. To accomplish this will require me to train not just my body but also my will. But the main reason why I am running this marathon is because somewhere I picked up the notion that I can’t, and I need to prove to myself that this is a lie.
I’ve set this goal aside for many years, but Vandercook has covered the expenses and given me the opportunity to pursue my dream. Vandercook is an amazing school that nurtures many talented individuals into realizing their potential for self expression. I have personally witnessed their students’ amazing talent, and inspiring passion for their craft.
