We ran our first marathon together in 2021 in Detroit. Initally, we decided that having this common goal would be motivating and fun to accomplish together. However, a larger part of the reason to train for the full marathon was based in the knowledge of how important cardiovascular health is for everyone.
We became great friends after becoming coworkers in 2016. We have spent our careers as a PA and NP working at Bronson Advanced Cardiac Healthcare - working to improve the lives of our patients by promoting heart healthy lifestyles and following guidlies published by the AHA. We realized that one of the best ways we can promote that lifestyle to our patients is to live our lives with the AHA lifestyle guidelines in mind - and training for and running in a marathon became one way to do that.
Once we completed our first marathon - we knew we wanted to do another one. We set our sights on Chicago. We joined the AHA Chicago Run with Heart team with the goal of completing this marathon and fundraising for an important cause along the way! We are excited to keep training and hope that you can help us to get to the start (and finish) lines on October 8, 2023 by supporting our fundraising goals for the AHA.
