Why am I doing this: I have been running most of my life, however, it wasn't until 2013 that I really became a runner. After the Boston Marathon bombings, I decided that I wanted to take a stand with all the other runners out there, that were not going to sit on the sidelines while our sport was the target of terrorism. After a great year of firsts, in my running life-first marathon, first Ultra marathon, first Half Ironman Triathlon, I yearned for something more. I wanted to make a difference using my athletic gift. I wanted to help others with this gift.
In 2014, I started fundracing (raising money for a cause through racing). My first choice of fundraising was for MS research. I know quite a few people who have struggled with MS, so I thought it would be a great cause. I beat my fundraising goals in 2014 & 2015! In 2016, I was chosen as an athlete for this AMAZING relay team and surpassed my goals once again. For 2018, I hope to crush my fundraising goal once more and greatly appreciate all the support from every one that donates, shares my page, and cheers me on along the way!
Why am I doing this: I'm excited to be a part of finding a cure for MS by having the goal of raising $10,000. My client, Jaka, has been fighting this disease since 1997 and now she is having difficulty using her entire left side due to nerve damage. Watching Jaka struggle has been a very difficult process for me . Running has changed my own life so now I want to use it to change someone else's.

Why am I doing this: Chasing my Lion!! April 2017 I was diagnosed with Relapsing Remitting Multiple Sclerosis. It was very devastating and scary for me. In the beginning of my personal MS journey the disease consumed me. I lost all interest in the things I loved. One day I decided to get on my treadmill again after taking months off and run. Surprisingly to me it made me feel a little bit better. So I did it again the next day. I choose to fight every day. This disease is NOT my identity. I have to tell my story and raise awareness. It keeps me authentic and maybe I can inspire or help someone else. There is purpose. It's a slow process but I'm coming back better and stronger than I ever was!!
The seed was planted long before I was actually diagnosed with MS to be a relay runner for MS Run the US. After my diagnosis it was a no brainer. I had to apply. I found something where I could combine my passion for running with my newly found desire to raise funds and awareness in the fight to end this disease. I feel honored and humbled to be a member of the 2018 Relay team.
