After searching quite some time for a cause, that I truly believe in to help raise money and awareness for while pursuing my love of fitness challenges and adventures, in the Fall of 2016 on a random rainy afternoon of couch surfing serendipity led me to The NFL Network's " A Football Life: Pat Tillman." Forty five minutes and forty seconds later my life was changed forever. I had finally found what I had been looking for. Something bigger and greater than myself to be a part of. For those of you reading this who are not familiar with who Pat Tillman was I strongly urge you to watch the same forty five minutes and forty seconds that I have countless times. For a preview of what changed my life that Fall day, and the reason why I have become a member of Team Tillman, I will use a passage from Dave McGinnis Pat's coach, (former Head Coach of the Arizona Cardinals) "The words honor, integrity, dignity, commitment they were not just adjectives with Pat Tillman, they were realitys in his life." For my first fundraiser my personal training client, fitness teammate, and friend Caroline Conway and I are training and running the Anthem Richmond Marathon together to become stronger teammates and friends through overcoming the challenges of conquering goals as a team and to help raise money for the Pat Tillman Foundation.
