Event: North Face Half Marathon Sausalito

Date: December 3, 2016

"I'm out to prove I can do anything I set out to do, especially to those who don't think they can."

Holly's "Why"

I'm a strong woman that believes I can do anything I set my mind to - and I'm out to prove it! After years of being overweight, miserable, smoker, and feeling like life has been sucked out of me, I turned things around by meeting small challenges bit by bit. Today I have accomplished 20+ GORUCK events and am ready to tackle more.

It Takes a Village

Running the North Face Half-Marathon is no small feat, and through social media and personal contact locally I'll be able to share my story and photos to inspire others. I've worked my way up to running just shy of a half over the past 2 years. Never ever ran before that. Now run 2-3x a week at an average of 15 miles per week.

If money wasn't an object, what would I change?

I would be able to achieve my dream of doing events and helping others train for theirs. Helping others see past their limitations as I've fought through mine would help many other women to a life of fitness and capability.
