- Hello I am Stephanie M. Freeman and I have created this to let everyone walk with me through my journey I am taking to accomplish my dream of qualifying for the Boston Marathon.Running is such a passion of mine. When I was 14 years old I experienced a life changing event that gave me this passion. I suffered a brain injury from a car accident that left me in a wheelchair & with no hope to ever walk again. For 2 months of my life I prayed for my miracle, and with strength and determination I proved all my doctors & nurses wrong... I walked again!When I run now a days I let this memory drive me harder than ever to be the best person/runner I can be! So therefore I know this goal of mine WILL happen for me and I will make most sure of it!

This weekend I had the opportunity to do my first speedo run. This event was held in Atlanta Georgia and the proceeds where to benefit Cancer. I wanted to be a part of this race because I have a friend who ran it with me that is a cancer survivor and she is also a triathele! I love doing charity races especially when it benefits something as important as Cancer.
I stayed with my brother in Atlanta for this race,and when I got to his house his next door neighbor who is an awesome photographer wanted to do a shoot with me. I had decided to not do any other photos until after my marathon because I have had to put my weight training to the side more and I just do not feel as fit. But I agreed to let her do some photos, and they were beautiful! I have included some of the photos from the race with this check it all out.
