Those who know me know I’ve loved animals all my life. Running however, is a fairly new love of mine, as I discovered it just 6 years ago. I’ve had the opportunity to run some incredible races and gained a personal sense of accomplishment that I’ve found with few other activities. To combine that accomplishment with an opportunity to give back to NYC’s animals was one of the easiest decisions I’ve had to make. I’ve got just a small amount left to raise and I can’t wait to get to the marathon start line to do my part as a Miles For Paws pack member!

It brings me great pride to run the TCS NYC Marathon as part of the Miles For Paws pack. With every mile, the funds and awareness raised are going directly towards saving the lives of NYC’s animals. By providing shelter, medicine, food, and a safe harbor, the Alliance is caring for those New Yorkers who cannot ask for help, but who most desperately need it. My life has always had animals of all sorts in it, and they give back much more than we can give them. I am a proud New Yorker running for our littlest residents!

Our beloved four-legged family members, Spanky and Buddie, are rescue dogs. After we adopted Spanky, I would often reflect on how his rescue has enriched my life in so many ways. I often give thanks to the hard work that goes into finding homes for animals, and the resulting love they can bring your family. About a year ago, I took up running as a challenge for myself to get outside more. I often do training runs with Spanky in Prospect Park and found more and more enjoyment in it. I then discovered Miles For Paws, which combined my love of animals being rescued with that of running. Spanky and I did an official 5K together, and I fell in love with this charity.

I currently work at Murray Hill Pet Hospital as a veterinary assistant, and I’m working to earn my degree as a veterinary technician. I’m the owner of two loving cats, Gwenevere and Orla, and I have been an animal lover all my life. I’ve never been a running enthusiast, but after I ran my first 5K I was hooked! I’m excited to have the opportunity to run the TCS NYC Marathon, especially for such a worthy cause.
