EVENT DATE: Nov 06, 2016
I'm very excited to be running the 2016 NYC Marathon! I was supposed to run it in 2012, the year that Sandy wreaked havoc on our area, forcing the race to be canceled. I'm honored to have another opportunity to run it and raise money for a great cause.
There was a time in my life when I couldn't run at all. I had a herniated disc and chronic back pain. A chiropractor suggested I try yoga (after I had tried so many therapies and seen so many doctors and surgeons and was just a phone call away from having back surgery). I tried yoga and it helped my pain. When I was finally pain free, I started to dream of what I may be able to do again physically. I started to run and was overjoyed at every mile I was able to get through. My first dream goal was a half marathon. I had some hiccups and had to stop training, but eventually I learned how to take care of my body and train properly, and I eventually ran the Long Island half marathon. A few more half marathons and a few full marathons later, I am still testing my limits. My body feels stronger than ever and with the support of family and coaching, I am grateful to be in training right now for a half ironman and in November, the NYC Marathon!
My goal is $3,000 and I thank you with all my heart for donating your hard earned money to this great cause.
