THE STORY:

Inspired by my mother who became a competitive runner later in life, I decided in mid 2014 to pick up running.  I was severly overweight and could barely run a half mile.  I entered a 3 mile race, with just the goal of finishing.  By the end of the race, I was hooked and set my sights on a half marathon.  Two years, five half marathons and several races later, I have set my sights on the NYC Marathon.  As part of the 9+1 program in 2015, I received guaranteed entry into the 2016 TCS NYC Marathon, however have decided to run for charity as well.

I use my mother as inspiration to get through all of my long runs.  In late 2014, my mother started experiencing symtpoms of what we would come to learn was Rheumatoid Arthritis, which began to progress quickly.  While it is now managed, it has affected her ability to race competitively.  Although being the tough person she is, she still gets out for a jog a few times a week.  

If you are able, please join me as I run for the cause and support the Arthritis Foundation.

Thanks,

Bret
