Why I #RunAmazing - Elaine Withers

On January 24, 2012, my dad passed away with cancer and on December 9, 2012, I ran my first half marathon, the Woman’s Half, in his memory. I ran that race for him. He was my inspiration.


I work at Baton Rouge General Hospital as a Surgical Technologist (surgery department), and it just breaks my heart to see babies and children coming to have surgery for whatever reason.

So, every step that I take when running the OLOL Amazing Half Marathon will be for all the sick babies and children. They will be my inspiration.
