Special Announcement!

2017 NYC Marathon Team 261 Fearless

I am so excited to share a special announcement with you! As you may already know, I am running the 2017 TCS NYC Marathon on November 5th. I was blessed to be able to get into the marathon for a second time. It’s a race that I fell in love with and despite how tough those 26.2 miles are, I have yearned to go back and run it again.

Getting into the NYC Marathon is definitely a huge thing for me (still special a second time around), but I really wanted to do more. By that, I wanted to run the race for a cause that was meaningful for me. So, when I found out that Kathrine Switzer’s 261 Fearless organization was forming a charity group, I knew I wanted to be a part of it.

That said, I just found out late this week that I have been invited onto Team 261 Fearless for the 2017 NYC Marathon! It’s such an amazing opportunity to be able to be a part of an organization that is working to empower women through running and fitness. This is a step up from being a 261 Fearless Ambassador, as this gives me a chance to really impact the women’s community.

There will be so much more from me forthcoming on the blog as I’m training for NYC, and I plan on doing some video blogs or the like. What I hope that YOU can do is donate to this amazing cause that is all about helping empower women through the sport of running.

Any donation you can give helps 261 Fearless in it’s mission. Whether you can give $2.61 or $261, every bit helps. You can make a tax-deductible donation through my page on Crowdwise.
