This will be my 4th time attempting New York City Marathon and my second time representing OPR in NYC. I personally love running with OPR. It's a group I feel a part of and I was part of something special from day 1. It makes me proud to run with OPR and support not only my great friends but knowing the money I bring into them will be greatly appreciated and used for great things that will help people. I love helping people and there's nothing better you can do for someone.
