Hey there - thanks for taking time to visit my page!!
My name is Peter Le, and I am very proud to support (and run on behalf of) the American Liver Foundation. I am a gastroenterologist/hepatologist and have spent the past 3.5 years of my medical career devoted to this specialty. My career has given me the privelege to meet many people, from many walks of life, affected by liver disease. The liver diseases cover the spectrum from benign, to self-limited, to chronic, and even life threatening. I am grateful and hopefuly that I can do my part to help my patients navigate through some challenging illnesses.
About me - I am born and raised in Aurora, Colorado. I departed for the Northeast for my education and recently returned to home to practice my specialty. Growing up, my primary activities were golf, cycling, playing guitar, and snowboarding. During high school, I would raise money and bike for the Multiple Sclerosis society in their MS 150 bike ride. This was very satisfying as our family friends were battling MS, and I could do something to help them in their fight. Years later, after meeting my wife, Alyssa, I slowly learned to love running. Alyssa has been (and probably will always be) the runner in our family. We ran the Hartford half marathon in 2010, and then I ran the Hartford Marathon in 2012. The latter was truly the most physically grueling event I ever completed.
I have been exceptionally fortunate in my career to have family, friends, and even strangers support me - physically and emotionally. I want to give back. I have chosen to support a foundation that helps the patients I see on a daily basis. I want to run to show my support for the ALF and give this race my best effort, physically and financially. Please support me and the American Liver Foundation in the 2015 New York Half Marathon.
