I started running after donating a kidney in 2006 to try to get into better shape. I didn’t realize the benefits that running and being active had other than trying to shed some weight. It does wonders for boosting my mood and keeping depression at bay. I’ve made wonderful friends who support and encourage me. In my years of running I’ve finished over 45 half marathon or longer races. Gazelle Girl provides an excellent way to give back to the community that has made such a huge impact on my life. Helping other women reach their personal goals is one of the best feelings I know. It’s an honor and privilege.
