#WhyIRun – Jamie Jones, 2019 Team JDRF


Meet first time Runner, Jamie Jones from Webster, NH.
Who do you run for?
My 12 year son was diagnosed with diabetes when he was 6. A marathon is a cake walk compared with what he goes through every day. I pray my son sees a cure to this disease sometime in his lifetime and this is the way I can help with that mission.
What are you Most looking forward to in the 2019 TCS NYC Marathon?
I haven’t been to NYC since I was a teenager and my family has never been. We are looking forward to the excitement of the city. Personally, I am hoping to finish the marathon in under 4.5 hours.
