Ryan writes a blog about running and advocating for those with disabilities, called The Runner with the Broken Neck.
In September 2008 he broke his neck in a swimming accident. After surgery, he was left without any paralysis or neurological impairment.
He just completed his first race, a 10 mile off road race, since his accident and placed 13th in a field of over 100 runners. Ryan will be running for Team Reeve in the NYC Marathon to help raise funds for those with spinal cord injuries.
