My name is Dave and I've been a runner since freshman year in high school. I was lousy at first, but steadily turned into a decent runner. After a long hiatus from running, I've gotten myself back into running. I've ran a half-marathon, a Tough Mudder, and various 5K courses in the last year. Now I've decided to run a marathon and help out a good cause at the same time.
I've decided to do my first marathon in Pittsburgh because of my love for the Steelers. I am a Steelers fan living and teaching in Baltimore, the home of the hated Ravens. So I figured this would be a better place to run my first marathon than the Baltimore marathon. I also was a patient at the Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh where I had two surgeries to repair my hearing and where I unfortunately bit a nurse when I came out of anesthesia (I was four years old at the time). So in order to make up for biting that poor nurse, I decided to raise money for this hospital :)
