"Running saved your life!" Those were the words from the doctor in the Trauma Unit.  February 2022, I was attacked and stabbed seven times (five knife wounds in the back and two knife wounds in the left eye) by a man who suffered a history of mental illness. I suffered two collapsed lungs, a fractured skull and a broken shoulder blade and other injuries. When I was attacked, I was preparing to do what I love - running marathons. After a year of recovery, I am running marathons again and will use these marathons to help address mental health awareness and support emergency response services. 

I invite you to be generous as I am running not only as a passion, but also running as a purpose (see video link).
