#irunforcourtney: Keeping Families Close
On October 9th, I will be representing Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC) at the 2022 Bank of America Chicago Marathon! As a member of Team RMHC, I will be training, fundraising and ultimately running 26.2 miles to help keep families together.
Courtney Waltimyer and I ran the 2018 Chicago Marathon together. It was my first. She convinced me to enter the lottery & I obliged because I never thought I’d get in (and of course I got in…) We planned to return to Chicago again this year, but she was killed in a while training for Ironman AZ on 16 Oct 2021. She had big goals to qualify for Boston. But more than her goals and athletic endeavors, Courtney was a giver, always helping others. This is why I chose to run for a RMHC… to help others and to honor Courtney’s very essence. Thank you for supporting us. #irunforcourtney
