Brooke’s Marathon Miles

In May of 2009, Brooke founded RunningBrooke and pledged to run at least a marathon-a-month – one marathon on each of 7 continents, in each of the 50 states, and the 5 world marathon majors — to inspire others to get involved and give back to Alexandria, VA-based charities.

“I literally started to run just to get some freedom, decompress, destress, and get some alone time. Then 9/11 happened, and running a marathon was on top of the bucket list. Now, over 2,500 marathon miles later, I’m still running and loving it. Running was one of the best decisions I ever made.

There’s something about setting and attaining goals, overcoming obstacles, getting some pretty good endorphins that keep me going. All those, plus, and more importantly, building playgrounds and funding cool programs that get at-risk kids moving more to spark their learning in school. At first running was definitely all about me, but now, the running is all about them and their success.”
