Sub-3 for CUC
I chose to run the Chicago Marathon for CUC for 2 reasons;
1. I love to compete! I have been competing in distance running ever since I was 12 years old and this is only another challenge to meet in a long running career.
2. I love CUC! I can not thank CUC enough for what it has not only done for me as a student, but also as an athlete and a Christian. I want to show my appreciation by giving all that I can in this marathon and raising funds so CUC can achieve its goal for improving the University for future students and faculty.
Ever since I first set foot on CUC's campus as a student I knew it was the place for me. CUC taught me the skills of how to be a successful person and teacher as well as equipping me with a great college experience. Therefore, my goal is to run my first marathon in under 3 hours. It is a lofty goal for a first time marathoner but I believe with the support of the University and my family and friends this goal can be achieved!
I will also use this page as my unofficial training journal and blog to keep anyone who is interested up on my training and where I am in reaching my goals.
