I run for fun, but I also run for my health, my sanity, and to prove to myself that I can reach goals I never thought possible.
Here’s a little about me:
I was a mediocre runner in junior high and high school. I ran the 1600 & 3200 meters in track, and I ran cross country. Ever since I wrote a research paper on the marathon in high school, I have had that distance on my list of things to complete someday. I started running in July of 2010 in order to complete my first 5K race (3.1 miles) the next month. I completed my first marathon in December of 2011. I have been bitten by the running bug and have gone on to complete additional marathons.
I have been consistently progressing as a runner, and it’s a natural part of my life. I enjoy running (and no, that is not an oxymoron), and I love to hear how other people discover the joy of running.
I became a UESCA certified running coach in 2018, and I am one of the coaches for RunRelated.
Here are some of my PRs (personal records) in each race distance and I hope to continue to update this list.
