When two people meet, and instantly have a connection, I can’t help but think they were meant to have met all along. That’s what it was like when I met Kathy for the very first time close to 3 years ago at the New York Road Runner’s Bronx 10 Miler.
“Excuse me, BrooklynMomOnTheRun, it’s me, GoMommyGo, from Instagram!”
...and we chatted as if we’d known each other for years. We ended the conversation with a hug, and left with so much more than the medal we’d come for. In the blink of eye, after meeting in person for the first time, we’d become each other’s biggest cheerleaders.
Kathy was already an amazing ambassador for Momentum Jewelry, and encouraged me to apply for ambassadorship when the time came...which I excitedly did. Shortly thereafter not only were we cheering on each other’s goals, as Momentum Ambassadors together, we were cheering for the goals of so many others as well; small goals, medium goals, and of course, the big goals too.
Kathy set the bar high as an Ambassador and as a runner. When you do a google search for inspirational women...you’re sure to see Kathy’s smile pop up in there somewhere! The goals she’d set for herself were brave, the biggest of which (as a runner) was to become a Six-Star-Marathoner.
A Six Star Marathon Finisher is someone who has completed each of the Six Abbott World Marathons: New York, Boston, Chicago, Tokyo, Berlin, and London; it is appropriately deemed the “Mount Everest Of Marathon Running.” This past April 28, 2019, in London, Kathy (aka BrooklynMomOnTheRun) became one of only 5,000 runners worldwide to receive her SIX STAR MEDAL!
Kathy from Brooklyn, ran all over the world...running until her dreams became reality! Kathy from Brooklyn is the biggest cheerleader I’ve ever met; she’s the person you want in your corner cheering for your dreams to come true too!
The new Brooklyn Bracelet honors Kathy’s achievement, while encouraging all who wear it to always reach for the stars!
Congratulations To Our Superstar! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Epilogue: This story wouldn't be complete without a recognizing our thoughtful Ambassador KC (@gomommy_go) for being the impetus for this special new commemorative bracelet design! KC, you're the BEST!
