Illinois Marathon April 2015. I made up my own program and beat my previous PR by 8 minutes.
Motivation to Run:
It makes me feel good mentally and physically. It is a stress reliever. I feel like it flushes out negativity. I also like how you can push your limits in running which I think translates into being able to better manage life's challenges.
"Somewhere there is someone more tired than you running."
I'm inspired by people who have every reason or excuse to quit and don't - physical limitations (handicap), life styles (multiple kids, tough job), age (90-year-old marathoners).
Favorite Part of Being a DWRunner:
Their attitude and how they welcome people of all levels. I tried some other groups and people didn't talk to the new people.
Favorite UA Product:
I have always used their running apparel. I love the way it fits and breathes. I was excited when they put in a store on Michigan Ave.
