EVENT: 2017 TCS NEW YORK CITY MARATHON

Michael Retter

THE STORY:

On August 1st, 2016, I made a lifestyle change.  I was 30 pounds heavier and I couldn't run a mile without walking some of it.  It was definitely time to get back into shape.  My diet changed along with my workout routine. I'm so much happier with myself and can't imagine going back.  Since August I have ran in several 10k or less races, 2 half marathons, won a mud obstacle race and finished my first triathon.  

I couldn't imagine completing these milestones without the tremendous support from my family, friends, coaches and awesome teammates.  My daughters have driven me the most.  Having them at my races means everything in the world to me.  They are now joining me in my workouts and we are signed up for our first traithlon as Team Retter Relay Team in September!

So now I ask for your support to fulfill my dream of running in this years NYC Marathon.  Your kind donations will go directly to an amazing organization, Americares.  When people are in crisis, Americares make sure that health comes first. Their Emergency Programs help communities prepare for, respond to and recover from disasters. They provide millions of people around the world Access to Medicine and supplies. Their Clinical Services deliver quality health care for people who have none. They create and support sustainable programs that strengthen Community Health.  Please take a moment to view their website: http://www.americares.org/en/

Thank you for your consideration to donate.  I appreciate it more than you know.

That's all for now.  I need to get running!

Best,

Michael
