G Runs for Boston

The bombings at the 2013 Boston Marathon were heartbreaking--even more so for those who love, cherish, and confide in the beauty and solstice of running. Growing up I struggled through many ups and downs---athletic injuries, eating disorders, and depression but through it all, running (and lots of prayer, family and friends :)) provided a healthy and therapeutic outlet for me to cease the battle between myself and let go of all the negativity that consumed my life. Running gave me the freedom I tried to find in destructive outlets. Last April, I was devastated to see this sanctified freedom tarnished, destroyed and obliterated from the bombings; however, I was more devestated for those who may have been running for the pure joy & individual freedom that they found through the sport. From that moment, I was immediately compelled to run for them in Boston, 2014.


As I train to run for Boston, I will be giving updates with my schedule, healthy eats and all around lifestyle commitment to those who set out last April to complete something they never thought possible. It is a commitment for those who like me pushed through injuries, disordered eating, and demons that chased them for so long but had their finish line unfairly stolen and unable to finish. Lastly, it is a commitment for those who now work tirelessly day after day in rehab facilities just to be able to put one foot in front of the other or strive to spend a moment out of the confinements of their hospital beds.


Please help me in my journey to raise $2,00 for someone who suffered from the bombings in the 2013 Boston Marathon--there are still so many people who need our help with medical payments, medication and rehabilitation treatment. Every little bit makes a difference, every little bit is greatly appreciated :) Thank you for your support & let's do this!
