In April, 2017, my Dad was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. He passed away 4 weeks later. I turned to running to help process the loss of my Dad. I have run since college, but not distances longer than 7 miles. I decided to run longer distances with my training buddy, Ghost, to help my grieving process. I completed a half marathon last May in memory of my Dad.
This year, I am running the Seattle Rock N' Roll Full Marathon on June 9th and raising funds for Project Purple. Project Purple helps fund medical research, in addition to supporting patients currently fighting pancreatic cancer.
