Thank you for visiting my page and for supporting the American Heart and Stroke Association. I am honored to be part of Tedy’s Trifecta Team running in the Falmouth Road Race (8/19/18), Disney Wine and Dine Half Marathon (11/4/2018), and the Boston Marathon (4/15/2109).
Like many of the people close to my heart, I have family members that have been affected by heart disease. I lost a maternal and paternal grandparent to a stroke. My partner in crime (Dad), Colin Ritchie, suffered a heart attack two years ago. I vowed to help him live a healthier life so someday we could call him Grampy. Once he healed physically, he would bike through the streets of Attleboro while I ran with him. Fast forward… “Coach Dad” trained with me through three half marathons and kept me entertained with all the sports gossip/lineup. I feel blessed to have lived this mutually beneficial experience and have loving memories that will last a lifetime.
We all have our own story and reason why we “run”. Please join me by giving back and donating to help defeat heart disease and stroke. From the bottom of my healthy heart, thank you for your support and words of encouragement.
