I have been chosen as 1 of the 5 Sponsored Ambassadors to gain an automatic bid to run in the NYC MARATHON! In sponsorship with work (Equinox), Dress for Success, a charity empowering women to achieve economic independence & New York Road Runners...
Distance running has become a passion of mine and NYC Marathon has always been a goal! I’m looking forward to sharing more details as they come! From training, to being an ambassador for both & now working in partnership with @dressforsuccess I will be sharing a lot in the coming months.
After taking two months off from running, due to back-to-back kidney surgeries, I am excited that I was given the all clear on August 1st to run again! My pace is not where I would want it to be but I can't let that get me down. Running at any speed is better than not running at all.
Dress for Success is an international not-for-profit organization that empowers women to achieve economic independence by providing a network of support, professional attire and the development tools to help women thrive in work and in life. https://dressforsuccess.org
I’m incredibly grateful for this opportunity! To be a part of a company who prides itself in a healthy way of life & who gives back to the community is such a blessing. Equinox has been incredible to me & I can’t thank them enough, especially in the past few months.
Please follow and let your friends and family know about @southernraeliving for updates, training, and outreach! My goal is to raise $3,000+ for @dressforsuccess !
For those who don't know, this past year and a half has been not what I expected. Once I am given the all clear I will be sharing a little bit more of my story and why I am honored to represent the TEXAS REGION and our amazing Equinox family we have down here! Let it be known you ALWAYS have a choice. To my family and friends, thank you for the love and outpouring support! These people truly saved my life and without their support none of this would be possible.
See you soon NYC! And, I can’t wait for November 4th!!!
