Goal

My name is Jessica DaSilva and I will be attempting to run my first 100 mile ultra marathon at the New Jersey Ultra Festival on March 21, 2015 to raise money to build a new playground for the West Rock Young Author's Academy in New Haven, CT. This playground will be built in Cindy Sherwin's memory. Cindy suffered a brain aneurysm on April 23, 2007. Cindy was a personal trainer, wellness coach and nutritionist dedicated to improving the quality of life of those around her. The Cindy Lynn Sherwin Memorial Foundation was created to celebrate her life and mission.

About The New Jersey Ultra Festival
This race is 100 miles on unimproved rail trail in New Jersey. The goal is to complete the distance before the cut of time of 29 hours. I will be detailing the last few month of my training on my blog. Please follow along as I will need the encouragement!
