30,000 Women Run the Streets of San Francisco

1391618_10100491622895770_1086845605_nThis past weekend, I was humbly invited to run alongside 30,000 amazing women (+ a few good men) in San Francisco for the 10th anniversary of the Nike Women's Marathon. Being able to run the empty streets and treacherous hills of the city was a once in a lifetime experience that was both motivating and inspiring. After a year long recovery from an injury (training for the LA Marathon), it felt great to cross the finish line.1382416_10100492298706440_1684126262_nAbove all, it was so incredible to see people from around the world come together for a bigger cause, which was to raise money for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society — in 10 years, Nike has raised $143 million dollars.946408_617794438259016_143013025_nThanks to the great team and Nike for putting on a stellar event -- I can't wait to return next year for the 11th anniversary!! –Kristen (Twitter|Instagram)
