Why I Run

I run because it improves both my physical and mental health. It's a time I can take to focus on myself and reflect on all of the positive things in my life; it's naturally fulfilling for me, and I am thankful everyday for my ability to participate in such an empowering sport.


Why I support Blessons

As someone that was fortunate enough to complete both a Bachelors and Masters degree, I support this organization because I believe every woman should have the opportunity to successfully complete college, no matter what challenges she may be facing. Education is empowering, and ensuring that it reaches as many women as possible will change the world.
