8k: 29:20, Half Marathon: 1:20:42, Marathon: 2:58:30

Primary Focus:

Marathon

Long Term Running Goals:

I want to improve at all the distances I race; however, the marathon is the distance where I think I have the most potential for growth. Ultimately, I would like to become a truly competitive masters runner.

Proudest Race:

I like to think that I find the positive side of all my races, but the Half Madness Half Marathon in 2017 is the one I'm proudest of. I had been having trouble with my right hamstring, had missed some training and went into it with low expectations. Despite a rolling course, I surprised myself with a PR.

Motivation to Run:

Running gives my life so much added purpose and dimension. It's also what makes me feel most human.

Guiding Quote:

"In the first half, don't be an idiot. In the second half, don't be a wimp". Scott Douglas, former Senior Editor of "Running Times" magazine.
