On March 12th our son, Wyatt, was born with 3 copies of the 21st chromosome. He inspires me every day with his courage, determination, strength, and spirit. He is now the reason that I run, along with all others who are affected by Down syndrome. This year, I will be raising money for LuMind Down syndrome research while I attempt to break 3hrs and 21 minutes at the NYC marathon on November 4th. The idea came to me after I helped Nike in its attempt to break the 2 hour marathon world record. The thought of pushing my own physical performance is so important to me because as a member of the Down syndrome community, I watch the strength and determination of individuals affected by Ds every day. I will be sharing my training and journey as I prepare for the NYC Marathon on Strava in the Breaking 3:21 group https://www.strava.com/clubs/club321 and you can follow Wyatt's adventures on @Tour_de_Wyatt on Instagram. Thank you for your support and most importantly, thank you for helping to create an even brighter future for Wyatt and his community. Let's do this!
