WE DID IT!

EVENT: Pittsburgh Marathon 2016
EVENT DATE: May 01, 2016
On December 20, 2014 I lost my dad to Alzheimer's. By the end of his life he no longer recognized me, my kids or my mom. It was one of the most tragic things I have ever experienced; watching my dad slowly deteriorate from this disease.
On May 1, 2016 I will run the Pittsburgh Half Marathon in his honor, and for all of those whose memories have faded unfairly. My dad was not perfect, but he encouraged me to pursue my dreams, no matter how crazy I am sure they seemed at the time. I dedicate this run to him, because life is precious- and should never be forgotten.
