From the first time I heard about the MS Run the US relay from my kettlebell trainer I knew it was something I needed to do. This opportunity is incredibly important to me, having become close with several multiple sclerosis sufferers; the idea of helping them and others was something I couldn’t pass up!
I started running 2 ½ years ago and have enjoyed challenging myself along the way from running 5k’s to 3 full marathons in the past year. Now, I have the biggest test ahead of me, 138 miles and raising $10,000. I am excited and am looking forward to the challenge. I believe anything is possible if you have the heart and determination to achieve your goals!
