2018 TCS Marathon - Linda M

-- placeholder --

My name is Linda McCue.  I live in Alpine, NJ.  It took me years to consider myself a runner but I suppose after 3 full marathons and at least 6 half marathons I can safely say …“I’m a runner!”  I did my first marathon at age 51 and completed two more within 2-1/2 years.  My running has taken me to amazing places.  I have raced in Utah, Hawaii, San Diego and Nashville.  I began running to raise money for a charity that provides travel opportunities for young people that would otherwise be unavailable due to family hardship, budget cuts in school systems, or simply lack of the access to or education about travel as a learning experience.

I was ready to end my marathon career but always said, “If I do one more full marathon it would have to be New York.”  When I was asked to run for Habitat for Humanity I knew I would be running for a great cause in the greatest city in the world.  And just like that…my marathon training has started again.  Now I need your help.  My fundraising goal is $2500.
