February 2 - Riverside Park Hot Chocolate 5K
Dedicated To: Ketsy Santiago
Ketsy is my trainer and friend. Even though I have known her for only a year, she has become an icon in my new life. She is my teacher and mentor. Someone who believes in me and is constantly reminding me that "I can do it." She gives me tough love sometimes, but at the end of the day, she is one of my Guardian Angels in disguise. Her passion is amazing, it is no wonder that she has funneled some of that passion to me.
February 14 - I Heart Running 5K
Dedicated To: The Love of my Life - My Hubby, Freddie Casa
How apropos to dedicate this race to the love of my life, my hubby of almost 14 years, on the day we celebrate LOVE. The man that has been a constant to me. My rock, my strength, my inner conscious. He has held my hand through my ups and down never making me feel alone. I love him dearly. I couldn't see my life without him.
February 17 - I Run With Heart 5k
Dedicated To: Rudy Murillo, My brother
Rudy is the other other most important man in my life. Not only are we bonded by blood but by love and respect of one another. He has been the most supportive person throughout my whole life. He has shown me unconditional love, and even though he is my little brother he has always been my protector.
January 1- New Year's Eve Dash 5K
Dedicated To : ME
Call me narcissistic, but I think I'm deserving of this. Dedicating the first race of the year to myself. Celebrating my new lifestyle, the new healthy me. Celebrating what at one point of my life seemed like an unreachable goal. I am healthier, stronger and happier than I have ever been.
January 31 - Sandy Hook Elementary Memorial Virtual 5K
Dedicated To: The 20 Angels and the 6 courageous women in CT
I feel the world had a broken heart with this senseless and tragic event. The little boys and girls that will never experience life, and those courageous women that gave their lives to save many others. May they RIP.
