I started running back in the late Fall of 2011. I ran my first 5K that November. I was hooked! From a 5k, I immediately signed up to run my first half marathon, the Pittsburgh Half in May 2012. Since there I have run 50+ races of all distances.
By the time May 2016 rolls around, this will now be my 4th marathon. It's a little crazy to think that the 2015 Pittsburgh marathon was my first.
I am pretty excited to not just run the Pittsburgh Marathon this May, but to run it as a Charity runner for Our Clubhouse. After speaking to them and getting to know their mission and organization, it hit home for me after losing a dear family member to cancer. I look back and wish I could have had an organization such as Our Clubhouse to be a support system for myself and my family.
I will be running the Pittsburgh Marathon for my grandfather, Daddjack. Without his love and support, I'd never even look at taking such a journey to run 26.2 miles. To learn more about him please visit here. It will give you an idea of how amazing he is and just how proud I am to now to run this in his honor.
Thank you for your contribution to my journey, but more importantly, thank you for supporting Our Clubhouse!
