I have joined the AHA 2023 Run with Heart team for my first marathon in October 2023! I have never really considered myself a runner, but on April 10, 2021 I ran my first half marathon and fell in love with the natural endorphins. My fitness journey transitioned to triathlon training, but after a scare with swimming-induced pulmonary edema (SIPE) I have decided to stick with dry sports :)
This marathon will be a physical and mental challenge for me and I am asking for your support to reach my fundraising goal. I chose to join the AHA Run with Heart team for many reasons, but mostly because I am a cardiology pharmacist that has been involved in all aspects of cardiac care including, but not limited to, heart transplants, artificial heart pumps, coronary artery disease, and anticoagulation (blood clot prevention) for over 10 years. I am committed to the marathon training regimen and am asking you to make a financial commitment to me in order to help fight heart disease. Thank you for your donation!
