I’m excited to support the Celiac Disease Foundation and run for Team Gluten-Free as part of the New York Marathon. I became gluten-free during my sophomore year of college. During this time I was a varsity athlete on my college swim team and didn’t know much about gluten or gluten intolerance. After countless months of testing, I worked alongside my naturopathic doctor and have been gluten-free (and dairy free) every since. Post graduation, I picked up running and ran my first half marathon in fall 2015 and my first marathon in fall 2017! I’m beyond passionate about running and gluten-free foods and love to share my gluten-free recipes with friends and family. Having a gluten intolerance has only made my life better and helped me to uncover my passion. I can’t wait to support the Foundation that has helped so many people who have celiac disease and gluten intolerance like myself. Please support me in my adventure over the course of these next couple months as I run for everyone who is gluten-free!
