Crystal Runs for GOTR!

By Unknown on 4/7/2017

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!

What's up next? Tune in to "Where's Crystal?" on our social media pages!!
