I’ve been training for half-marathons for the past four and a half months. I was supposed to run Shape Half Marathon last month and days before the race, I came down with an awful stomach
bug. I was advised by my doctor to pull out of the race because my body was so dehydrated. I was devastated but I didn’t want this bump in the road to stop me from running.
The day I pulled out from Shape I signed up for the Brooklyn Half. I’m running …and NOTHING CAN STOP ME!
For this race, I’m running with New York Road Runners (NYRR)’s Team for Kids. The funds I raise will go directly to support Rising New York Road Runners, NYRR’s youth program and events program. “Through school-based programs, youth events and a collection of digital resources, Rising New York Road Runners, brings free running and fitness programs to students across the country.” As a mother of two growing teens, I am constantly looking for ways to keep them active by showing them how important it is to have a healthy lifestyle, which is why this is a cause I am extremely passionate about.
