I am a junior at Dartmouth College in New Hampshire, and although I now spend most of my time on the east coast, I am a Chicagoan at heart (though I’ve never actually lived within the city limits). I started running during my time at New Trier High School when my older brother joined the cross-country team and ever since then I’ve been hooked. This October will be the second time I run the Chicago Marathon, but my first time with the Lincoln Park Zoo. Many of my best childhood memories revolve around the zoo, from visiting the zoo on school field trips, to having picnics with my brothers, to seeing the zoo lights every holiday season. Help me keep the Zoo free for all of the kids in the Chicago land area to enjoy!
