Oklahoma Mile 14 Sponsor...

Name: Roxanne Olvera

Profession: Lawyer- estate planning and probate

Hobbies: Reading, traveling, cooking
Shoe size: 9 ½ (10.5 in running shoes)

Favorite inspirational quote:
“This is what you shall do:
Love the earth and sun and the animals, despise riches, give alms to every one that asks, stand up for the stupid and crazy, devote your income and labor to others, hate tyrants, argue not concerning God, have patience and indulgence toward the people, take off your hat to nothing known or unknown or to any man or number of men, go freely with powerful uneducated persons and with the young and with the mothers of families, read these leaves in the open air every season of every year of your life, re examine all you have been told at school or church or in any book, dismiss whatever insults your own soul, and your very flesh shall be a great poem and have the richest fluency not only in its words but in the silent lines of its lips and face and between the lashes of your eyes and in every motion and joint of your body. . ”

Why did you choose to support the Susan Mortensen Turley foundation by being a race sponsor? See above. Before Anna even asked for sponsors for her OKC race, I read Susan’s blog and was so moved by her words/actions. Her story stayed in my thoughts for days after …so, it’s the least I could do.

Who would you like to challenge to become a race sponsor for the Oklahoma Marathon?
Anyone 25 years or older.
