Hi my name is Richard, but I go by Richy for short. I’m 29 years old and I’m a special Ed paraprofessional at a high school. I’ve been an avid runner since high school and have ran 12 marathons and too many to count races in other distances. I also really got into biking in 2020 and do road riding and gravel riding, this summer I rode from Minneapolis to Duluth which is 157 miles! While being physically activity is important to me, so is mental health and I’ve been a major mental health advocate since I was diagnosed with bipolar disorder a few years ago. Physical and mental health are both very important to me .
