THE STORY:

I only recently met Brad, after having read about his story in the Sports Business Journal's 40 Under 40 issue. However, I felt a really strong connection as a runner in my 30's who also suffered a stroke, albeit a mild one in my case. I suffered a concussion in a freak incident on an airplane in June 2011, and developed constant severe migraines. Ultimately I began having memory problems, balance issues, getting lost and other issues; and a lacunar infarct (mild stroke) was diagnosed. I'm doing fantastic now, and to be able to run a marathon after all that will be a huge accomplishment, and particularly to run the NYC Marathon, which is where I live. It will be so much more meaningful to be able to run it for a really important cause that is so personal to me. I'm so excited to be part of the RUN 4 BRAD team!

I've been a runner since I was 13, and I appreciate it even more after medical problems kept me away from running for a couple years. I've run two marathons before -- one the inaugural Quad-Cities Marathon, which goes through my hometown of Davenport, Iowa; and the other the DisneyWorld Marathon.
