I am a Team World Vision endurance runner. I began running in 2016, after deciding to run the Chicago Marathon for charity. Since then, I have completed 7 marathons (including two solo 'virtual' marathons in 2020 and 2021), and 3 Hood to Coast races (200-mile team relay). And what's more important, I have cumulatively raised over $90,000 in those few years for clean water projects in east Africa. I start nearly every long run with either a Picky Bar or Picky Oatmeal!
