He had become very close with Ryan over the years and he is devastated, as is everyone who knew Ryan. His postgraduate training had included ramping up to the marathon distance, more than four times the length of a 10K. “I was absolutely impressed with his ability to motivate and his abundant knowledge of the science, physiology and philosophy of the sport,” said Shay, in the online journal. HCM, a rare but frequent cause of sudden death in young athletes, is a condition in which the muscles of the left lower chamber of the heart thicken and enlarge. He just dominated the field that day and won going away. “They hit it off right away,” says Sara Hall. "Sharlene Day, director of Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy at University of Michigan Health Systems, said: "That statement alone—cardiac hypertrophy with patchy fibrosis—to me, is HCM. He’s a tough guy from a tough area.”, When he first had the chance to qualify for the Olympic team (back in 2000), Shay couldn’t help but daydream about competing on the Olympic level. “Near the top, we ended up face-climbing vertical rock walls – crazy and scary stuff. Shay was a fierce competitor on the cross country trails whose strong devotion to the team produced a gutsy performance that helped the Irish win the 2001 BIG EAST title (photo by Matt Cashore). At the mass start of the New York City Marathon on Sunday, race director Mary Wittenberg called for a moment of silence in memory of Shay. He will be sadly missed by his sisters Maura and Una and his brother Pat, nieces, nephews, relatives and friends. He was tenacious.”. “Anybody who wanted to go out slow, this wasn’t going to be the race for them. But it was there that he met Craig, a former two-time NCAA champion in the 10,000 meters who also set the NCAA 10-K record (32:19) during her Stanford career. For those not familiar with the demands required for running different distances, making the shift from 10-K races to marathons provides a significant shock to the system.

“I kept waiting to hear his footsteps, but they never came,” said Shay, who finished a whopping 46 seconds ahead of the favored Kelly. Ryan and Alicia Shay had emerged as one of the top couples in professional distance running, a close-knit community that still was coming to grips with Ryan’s death when the NYC Marathon began earlier today. “It was kind of like a circus atmosphere.”, Later in his college career, Shay reflected on his growth over the years as a member of the Irish cross country and track-and-field programs. Every dollar helps save lives. Shay maintained his steady progress and headed into the 2007 trials as a contender to make the three-man Olympic team. Ryan Shay’s first-place finish in the 2001 NCAA 10,000-meter race represented Notre Dame’s first national championship in an outdoor track-and-field event in nearly 50 years (photo by NCAA photos). Just four months ago, Sara (Bei) Hall served as a bridesmaid at Ryan and Alicia Shay’s wedding in Jackson Hole, Wyo. Shay came to Notre Dame as one of the middle children in a family of eight distance-running siblings.
