Why are you running the L.A. Marathon? CMC needs a robust financial aid program to ensure that all of the brightest potential future leaders from around the world are able to attend. The best way to do this is fundraising. As a student I don’t personally have much to give, but hope that running the marathon can generate much needed support from family, friends, and the CMC community for the Student Imperative.

What is the biggest challenge in training for the L.A. Marathon? Eating and hydrating before and during longer runs. Too much makes you feel sluggish. Too little and your energy crashes. Hitting just the right amount is tough.
