For every year that I have done this walk/run when asked, "why?" I have answered: "my family." There are too many people I have lost to heart disease before I even had the chance to meet them and then other loved ones that I have watched struggle with heart disease.
This year, one of the most special people in my life was taken from me far too early after a cardiac event. So while every year I would say that Rebecca was part of the reason I ran, this year she is the whole reason.
I miss you, Becks. This one is for you. <3
