Project Description


Bio: I did not believe I could be a runner. All it took was for someone to believe in me and encourage me to start my journey. I was in my late 20’s when I ran my first 5K. Running is when I do my best thinking. I have found that my mind is the most still and open while my body is moving. Every run is a chance to think of something new or to learn something about myself. Running had been something I had always done alone until last year. Running is something that can bond people. I have met several different runners all of whom respect and encourage each other. Gazelle Girl was the first race I ran “with” people. I want to help others along their journey as I have been helped along mine.
Why Gazelle Girl: The biggest barrier for women is that they don’t believe in themselves and quickly excuse themselves from even trying. Every step counts. You don’t have to be the fastest or the best as long as you are doing your best. Gazelle Girl was an amazing experience for me last year! The training, the race, the everything! I was truly inspired by the experience. I like the view from the “I can do it” side of the fence. I want to be a part of helping others jump to the “can do” side.
