December 7, 2019

I have two amazing boys, both of whom have Tourettes. I started out running because I enjoyed having an outlet that allowed me to quiet my mind and to be healthy at the same time. Over time, my journey has evolved. My health journey is also there to provide an example to my children.


Now, where I stand, I realize that even in the simplest of actions we can bring change. I want my efforts to go towards the Texas Tourette's Association. They have been a great source of information over the years, and they actively help individuals with Tourette who are in need in the community. So, I hope you will join me--perhaps in a race someday--but more importantly in supporting the community and something you believe in. 


I greatly believe in the Texas Tourette Association and hope you will make a donation to support them. #myheartmyracemypace
