Erica ran throughout high school – as well as played soccer – and after a ten year hiatus, is back at it.  Regardless of the distance, it’s the accomplishment after every run that is a great thing.

I love this picture!!!!  Life (and running!) should be FUN!!

This is Erica’s first time running with us.  She and her girlfriend Courtney are both running with us actually.   Erica said she couldn’t resist a race named after one of the cutest furry friends of the forest but it’s more than that.  She had many opportunities growing up and when she read about where the money from the race goes she decided she wanted to do what she could to make sure these kids get the chance to learn leadership and team building skills.

Taking a decade off to focus on her career, Erica decided to restore balance to her life with a fun, accessible sport – RUNNING!!  The best part of running??  The training and the finish line.
