ORGANIZER: RUN 4
EVENT DATE: Nov 02, 2014
I have trained for races intermittently over the past 10 years and have completed 3 half marathons and 1 marathon. I live in Toronto, Ontario, Canada and am a proud father of 2 little girls.
I know Jessica through the NHL as I am an employee of the NHLPA. Through my work for the NHLPA I have spent a significant amount of time in NYC, and it is a city that I really enjoy. I came to NYC to watch the New York City Marathon in 2009 when I went to support and cheer on a close friend of mine. Through all of the energy and excitement of watching the marathon in 2009, I decided that I really wanted to run it as well. After going through the lengthy, multi-year lottery system I finally got accepted.
After an injury prevented me from running the race last year, I had begun my training for this year’s New York Marathon prior to a business trip to Virginia that both Jessica and I attended. In Virginia, Jessica shared the full story of her husband Brad with me and told me about Team Run 4 Brad. Jessica and Brad’s strength is amazing and I’m motivated by the opportunity to run for, not only myself, but for something much larger.
On November 2nd I will be lacing up my shoes as part of Team Run 4 Brad. Thanks to Jessica & Brad for the opportunity to join the team.
