This will be my second Chicago Marathon. I ran for U2FP last year and am excited to be running for this organization again! I loved seeing people of the organization cheering me on at the marathon last year! Now that I know I can get through a marathon, I would like to beat my time from last year. My goal for the 2019 year is to run over 600 miles :)
Fun Fact: I love listening to music while I run and just get in my zone. My favorite song is "Fight Song" by Rachel Platten.
City: Lombard, IL
Profession: 2nd Grade Teacher
Race Goal: 4 hours 40 minutes
