Runner Story:

I started running my sophomore year of college. I originally just started to get in shape from the unhealthy college life. After a few months of consecutive running I started racing and instantly fell in love. I love the running but the community of runners at races and the support from everyone around is something you don't find often. Since I starrted running I have done hundreds of 5ks, 10ks, seven half marathons, and one full marathon. I also do triathlons on the side for fun :)

I found out about MS run the US after reading a yahoo article while it was happening in 2015. I read all about it and looked at all the runners training and taking their time out to run and fudraise for this cause. I knew I wanted to apply for the team in 2016. I wanted to do this because there are people out there who would love to go outside on a nice day and go for a run and aren't able to. So I'm doing this to help find a cure for MS so everyone and walk and run and bike as much as they want!!

Many thanks for your support -- and don't forget to forward this to anyone who you think might want to donate too!
