From the time I was little to now I've loved running whether it be in the pouring rain or in the sunshine. I joined clubs for it and met one of my very best friends, Talia.
We shared the same passion for running and she introduced me to Achilles. The mission of Achilles International is to empower people with all types of disabilities to participate in mainstream running events in order to promote personal achievement. The overwhelmingly welcoming and supportive environment made me want to come back. I love Achilles so much and think of it as a second home when I think of the people I have met there.
I have run a half marathon before and am always looking for a way to get back out there. The opportunity to run another half while supporting an organization that I care about is one I cannot refuse. I love how I am able to do what I love at Achilles International while helping other runners do the same.
