It all started last fall at the Freedom's Run Marathon. Said I'd never run a marathon, and here I am going to Boston in April 2018!!
That's where this road started. Over the course of the next months, I entered and ran
- Stone Mill 50 Miler
- Candy Cane Dash (with my adorable son Sebastian ... who out-sprinted me at the finish!)
- Frozen Heart 50K (which I won and set a new course record)
- Bull Run Run 50 Miler (where I cried when Leah showed up and cheered "Crystal runs for GOTR!" She wouldn't let me quit even though I really wanted to and was there at the finish line cheering everyone on.)
- Makin' Hay 10K
- Frederick Half Marathon
- OSS/CIA 50 Miler Night Run (taking second place)
I've got a few more events on my Road to Boston. Won't you join me? I'm a SoleMate for GOTR.
I run to support Girls on the Run, but more importantly, I run to show girls that they can do far more than they believe! Someone encouraged me a long time ago. I want to encourage all girls and women to boldly pursue their dreams and make them realities!
