My name is Ryan Teetz, and I am 24 years old from West Allis, WI. Running I’m sure like many people wasn’t always part of my life. I heard about a thing called runDisney from a relative and thought well that sounds interesting. In 2015 I signed up for my first 10K at the age of 16. That race was my entry to the world of running that I couldn’t imagine my life without. The following year I ran my first half marathon and then at 18 my first marathon and Dopey Challenge, which for those that don’t know is a 5K, 10K, half marathon, and full marathon on consecutive days.
Since then I haven’t stopped. I have now run seven full marathons, numerous half marathons, 10Ks and 5Ks. The one thing I’ve loved most about this journey is meeting people who also share a love of running. Some of my now best friends are because of running. I’ve been able to travel to different places and experience amazing new things because of this sport as well.
I couldn’t be more thrilled to continue to share my running journey and continue to meet amazing people throughout.
