Run by Nora
I'm a runner, running coach, and owner of Team Bird Training. I have always been drawn to running. I played sports throughout high school that involved running, such as basketball, soccer, and track, but wasn’t really a runner. I have been running for the past 8 years and have made the leap into Ultra-running.
I grew up in Southwest WI right on the Wisconsin River in a very small town called Muscoda, graduating from Riverdale High School. Granddaughter of Mary Grimm, co-founder of Riverway Communities of Hope.
Nora will run 175 miles
I am running from Kenosha to Dubuque staying on roads totaling 175 miles. I will be attempting this as a straight forward run, which means no lengthy stops. This will be the first FKT (fastest known distance) for that direction (east to west) and that distance on that course.
This run has a two-fold purpose:
To set the FKT and to raise awareness and money for Riverway Communities of Hope. This charity is close to my heart and very personal. My grandmother is a co-founder, and my family has been directly and indirectly affected by the reasons needed for such a charity. I cannot think of a better way to bring awareness that services like these are indeed available and that there are people who are here to help. What better way than to run through the area that this organization helps.
