Still Running

I'm a UNT graduate in kinesiology and was happy to see the letter in the spring issue from the former track and cross country members who are still running. I teach elementary P.E. in Garland and founded the Garland Ground-Breakers, a social walk and running club.

I was entered in the ING New York City Marathon last year to raise awareness and funds for community health and wellness, especially in regard to childhood and family obesity, and received a Run For Something Better grant for my school. Last year's marathon was canceled due to Hurricane Sandy, but I plan to return this fall to continue with my mission. The ING NYC Marathon will be my eighth marathon.

I also ran with my daughter, Krisyla Gilmore, who's now a UNT student, in the North Texas Touchdown 5K at Apogee Stadium in April (right). It was incredible to have two generations of Eagles finishing the 5K together.
