Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

I have been running for 14 years and started taking it more seriously around 2011 when I trained and ran my first marathon down the New Jersey Shore. My son was then three years old and I worked night shift as a burn nurse. Running gave me a place to put my pain and joy, my regrets and hopes, my missed chances and my opportunities. Most of my decisions have been made through my solo long runs, finding my meaning and purpose on the road. 

Since then I have had another child and various different nursing positions. I have ran three World Major Marathons: New York, Boston and Chicago. I am a 3x Boston Marathon Qualifier and 1x New York Marathon Qualifier. I have grown to love running for so many reasons and it has given me so much. 

I have a new running dream - to eventually run the remaining three World Major Marathons (London, Berlin and Tokyo) and I am blessed to have been given the opportunity to gain an entry into the London Marathon on October 3, 2021 through fundraising for Action on Pre-Eclampsia. Action on Pre-Eclampsia aims to raise public and professional awareness of pre-eclampsia, improve care, and ease or prevent physical and emotional suffering caused by the disease. https://action-on-pre-eclampsia.org.uk

Supporting a cause that is meaningful will further add purpose to my personal mission. Helping others is a passion of mine that is stronger then running and I hope to accomplish both through this effort. 

Thank you so much for reading about me and considering to donate.
