Running

Three years ago, I quit my job working in Football Operations to take on the World Marathon Challenge and bring awareness to Dyslexia. Much like my sports career, this journey began with running. ⠀

When I started working in sports, I was running a water caddy around a football field. When I started my journey to bring awareness to dyslexia, it began by running 7 marathons in 7 days on 7 continents. In both cases, there was uncertainty with the direction; as long as I kept moving one foot in front of the other, the path revealed itself. ⠀

This past fall I have continued partnering with International Dyslexia Association writing the book Running The Distance where all sale proceeds go back to the organization as a fundraiser. The book tells the story of how dyslexia prepared me to run the World Marathon Challenge and is available on the International Dyslexia Association website.
