Gab Roth - NAMI-NYC

Gab Roth

My name is Gab Roth. I’m 26 years old and from Colts Neck, New Jersey. I became a runner when I moved to Washington DC for college in 2014. Running quickly became my go to activity when I was seeking mental relief or clarity, and was the first thing I wanted to do whether I was feeling overwhelmed, excited, or needed a pick-me-up. I’m running with NAMI-NYC after training with my good friend Margaret who ran in 2019 in honor of her Dad. Seeing Margaret prepare for and run the race was incredibly inspiring and I knew I wanted to run with NAMI-NYC the first chance I could!
