Who's one of our favorite former bachelorette contestants of them all? Ryan Sutter, that's who.
Well, Trista Sutter's hubby completed the GORE TEX TransRockies Run on Sunday, a grueling 115-mile partner running race for six days throughout the Colorado trails. Ryan ran the race to raise money for charity in conjunction with fellow fire fighter Johnny LoFaro.
They participated to raise money and awareness for First Descents, a nature-based rehabilitation organization, and GrassRoot Soccer, an HIV-awareness organization.
After placing tenth in their age group, he muscled through knee pain. Perhaps a boost of inspiration was seeing Trista and their kids, 5-year-old Max and 3-year-old Blakesly, at the finish line each day.
According to the press release, Ryan knew what he was getting himself into prior to the grueling trek. He stated, "There will be times when I will feel like I simply cannot pedal one more stroke or scurry up any more vertical, but I will have my amazing teammate from the fire department keeping me motivated along with the inspiration of knowing I am contributing to two hugely meaningful charitable organizations."
Way to go, Ryan!
