Marianna Runs Marathon Strengthened by Christ

Marianna Runs Marathon Strengthened by Christ

What did you do?

I started training in the spring and recently completed my first 50-mile running an ultra marathon!

I was the 4th female to finish, 17th out of 41 to complete the race, the youngest person running, and the only one in my age group. What inspires me to run these massive distances is to show people who don’t think great things can be accomplished. That it is possible, after all, you can do all things through Christ who strengthens you.

What organization recognized the achievement?

Run Woodstock is the organization that I ran the race through.

How did homeschooling help you achieve your goal?

Homeschooling has helped me achieve my goal by giving me the flexibility to schedule my runs at different times during the day and for many hours at a time. It would be a bit more challenging if I weren’t homeschooled since my schedule wouldn’t be as flexible.

What are your interests?

I’m a girl of many interests!! My main goal in life is to strive every day to become a Saint. Learning and digging deeper into my faith is a huge interest of mine. Along with

Running, Swimming, working out, volunteering, Traveling, Photography, Organizing, Cleaning, Crafting, Time management, Socializing with Friends and Family, Business related stuff, and learning new things every day.

What are you inspired to do with your life?

I’m incredibly inspired to follow my dreams and become a professional photographer!! I want to change people’s lives for the better!!!!

What are your favorite subjects and why?

Personal Finance all the way!!! I love how it affects real life; you can use it daily! All the numbers and business-like things discussed in this subject fascinate me!!
