The Day After
April 18, 2017

I woke up this morning to the brightest sunrise in recent memory.  It felt like a sign...a thumbs up, job well done.  Maybe it was my Mom.  See more

THE STORY:

I run for my amazing and wonderful Mom, Dorothy.   She is a former teacher, devoted sister, loving Mother-in-law, adoring Nana and as friends and family know, she is the hostess with the mostess.   

In 2015, she was diagnosed with Dementia.  Although we acted quickly to ensure she had the right medications and at-home care, soon this was not enough.  

Transitioning a loved one to a nursing home is hard.  With each visit, my Mom and I share joy, laughter, remembrances and sadness.  I’ve learned that talking about the past sometimes breaks the grip of her disease, even if for just a few moments. 

So what's the connection with the Boston Maration?  Two years ago, I ran Boston for the first time.  On raceday, I spotted a huge “GO SEAN” sign just before Heartbreak Hill.  Gathered around were my Mom and Family cheering wildly.   That was one of the last times my Mom was independent enough to be in public and I’m deeply grateful that we can still share that memory.

If running 1000 marathons would help my Mom recover from this disease and spare others from a similar diagnosis, I’d sign up today.   Since there’s only 1 Boston and it’s the only marathon my Mom saw me run, I’m committed to running it every year I am able. 

This year I'm honored to be running as a member of the Alzheimer’s Association team.  This enables me to make a difference for my Mom and those who suffer from this debilitating disease. 

Please consider supporting the Alzheimer’s Association and my Mom by donating to my marathon fundraising page.

Thank you,
Sean  

 

In 2016 the RUN TRI RIDE to End Alzheimer's raised over $1.2 million to support programs and services for those impacted with the disease. The 2017 Boston Marathon team is determined to continue this tradition of success, as we celebrate our 16th year!
