One random fact everyone should know about you.
I dedicate every run to my parents and being healthy. My dad was diagnosed with stage 4 cancer at the age of 53 and has been fighting it for 30 years. My mom was diagnosed with early onset Alzheimer's at the age of 62. She passed away this past September after her 15 year battle. My motto is always run for health, fun and to find peace in your heart.
