2019 New York City Marathon

Hey friend!

My story is I've been running for personal growth and recovery (Pastor Bernie Anderson) the last 8 years. It's been an incredible journey that has involved numerous marathons and half marathons. Not to mention the ups and downs of training.

But a few years ago I gave up running Marathons! I decided I was "retired" and would only run Half Marathons. Truthfully though, I was discouraged about marathons because I was bothered by a nagging IT Band (common runner injury) that prevented me from completing a full marathon in a time I was happy with. 

I'm grateful that I've been able to address the injury and feel confident about running beyond 13.1 miles (half marathon). But more importantly I'm deeply inspired by my friends and colleagues who are stepping up on behalf of vulnerable children.

So I'm back! And I'm running The New York City Marathon on Sunday Nov. 3 and I'm inviting friends and family to sponsor a child through World Vision, with a goal of 25 children in celebration of my 25th Wedding Anniversary!

Thanks for your support!
