"The 2012 GO! St. Louis Marathon was my 28th marathon, and while each race has held a special meaning to me, none has been so meaningful as this marathon. To be able to run for a cause that means so much to me, while doing what I enjoy, was one of the most fulfilling experiences of my life." -Team Run 4 EQUALITY charity runner
