I'm running the Rock 'n' Roll USA Half Marathon in Washington, DC to raise money and support Girls on the Run DC.
I ran my first 5k in October of 2010 and less than a year later ran my first half, the Rock n Roll Philadelphia. I planned to run the Rock n Roll DC half with 2 friends. I went to register, only to find out that it had sold out just hours before. Everything happens for a reason, and this was meant to be. Weeks later, I was blessed with the opportunity to run this race as a SoleMate for Girls on the Run DC. Growing up always feeling fat, unattractive, and less adequate than my friends, I can truly appreciate, and believe in this organization. By supporting me in this fundraiser, you're inspiring young girls to be joyful, healthy and confident!
