THE STORY:

Hi Friends! 

A PH Patient's heart often beats at a marathoner's pace...  and that's why we (The Gabardas) are working hard to race for a cure for Pulmonary Hypertension.

And you may be wondering what exactly that is too, right? Well, it's  is a disease of high pressures in the arteries in the lungs that makes people short of breath, lightheaded, and can make doing the simplest tasks like walking up stairs, playing outside, going for a hike, or carrying groceries into the house exhausting tasks.

Although there are several medical treatments available, there is still no cure, and sometimes people even need to get a lung transplant. We are racing to help change all that by raising awareness about the disease and funds to find a cure.

Now for the even cooler part---- "Let me be your lungs"

By registering with Team PHenomenal Hope, we are literally  racing with members of the PH community. Our team is partnering our athletes with community members so that we are literally racing not only for our own goals and personal race time, but for our friends in the comunity.

This journey is about much more than the 13.1 or 26.2 miles - it's about new community and new friends. #LetMeBeYourLungs

Now for The Gabarda's:

We are a husband wife team racing for pulmonary hypertension. We met in the fall of 2009 at a race in Chicago and the rest is, well history. We have raced thousands of miles together all over the world over the past 6 years and we are looking forward to continuing the journey both at the Pittsburgh Marathon this year and then at our first Ultra Marathon in October and our first Ironman triathlon as a married couple. We promise to post all of our awesome updates if you promise to share this journey with us and help support PH!
