My dad died of ALS on June 1st 2018. He had been athletic all his life, always either running or going to the gym or playing tennis, swimming, hiking, biking and walking! Right up until a year before his death. I'm sure that I take after him as I've also turned into an adrenaline junkie. He went way sooner than I ever wanted. He would have been so proud of me, knowing that I'm now running marathons, but unfortunately I never got to share that with him.
I'm running my first official marathon this year (BMO Vancouver Marathon) and couldn't be happier to be running for ALS.
