I am beyond excited to be part of this team and great venture! I believe I am where I am meant to be. I truly am not sure how I arrived here and how it's all going to go in April, but I do know that it will be amazing and successful. I live on faith and being a 12 year cancer survivor, I feel it is what has kept me so driven.
I have an amazing support system with all of my family, friends, co-workers, and students! I have always used running as a time to connect with others and myself. As the years have passed I have collected many medals, t-shirts and, most importantly, memories!!! Running the Boston Marathon is a dream! Supporting a cause that I am a part of and believe in wholeheartly is a blessing! Having the ability to run 26.2 miles is, for me, a gift!
I believe that I, once again, have agreeded to something much larger than I am. It excites me to see how this will all unfold. I feel on fire! Amby Burfoot wrote in one of his books about seeing the start line and if you don't make it over you will never feel the successes from the finishing of the race.
It truly is as simple as "She believed she could so she did!"
Please support me in any way that you can! Early dection is so important! Help me and more importantly 15-40 Connection spread the word and continue to grow within our communities!
