Mt Si

This is it! My first Ultra and my event for Girls on the Run to raise money for scholarships.

Each mile is dedicated to someone I love, something I have learned, something I dream, and something I am thankful for:

Mile 1: Shane. Thank you for being there for me ALWAYS.

Mile 2: Amberle & Mckenna. You both inspire me everyday.

Mile 3: Sonja. My amazing friend, mentor and running partner. Thank you for doing this crazy thing with me.

Mile 4: My mom and dad. Thank you for teaching me unconditional love.

Mile 5: Friendship. The people we live for.

Mile 6: Running. For peace, clarity, health, fitness, great legs

Mile 7: Freedom. Something I will never take for granted.

Mile 8: Health. There has been colds, fevers, chills, but overall I'm healthy.

Mile 9: Education. "The key to unlock the golden door of freedom"...George Washington Carver

Mile 10: Girls on the Run...I love how the program helps build confidence.

Mile 11: Girls on the Run...And how this spills over to other aspects of the girls lives. "I ran a 5K I can also ____."
