The Final Week of Training for Katherine & Elizabeth

We are in the last week of training for the United Airlines NYC Half Marathon (which is slated for Sunday, March 19th). Not only is the Row New York team putting their finishing touches on their long-distance runs, they are also in the final push to meet their $1,500 fundraising goals to support Row New York’s free programs for youth and people with disabilities here in New York City.

Today we bring to you: Katherine and Elizabeth! These two motivated ladies love some outdoor fun and have quality motivational quotes for training days. Stop by their CrowdRise pages to make a donation in lieu of running 13.1 miles yourself!

Why are you running for Row New York?

I love the idea of this program and see how it’s impacted so many teens. As a retired rower for Fordham, I understand the importance of discipline when combined with academics and sports yields high returns.

West Side Highway and Battery Park.

Motivational quote/ phrase that keeps you going?

A big thank you to Elizabeth and Katherine for stepping up and running for Row New York!
