5k: 24:38, 8k: 41:02, 10M: 1:28:16, Half Marathon: 1:58:11, Marathon: 4:26 - I’m most proud that I negative split my 2016 Chicago marathon by 6 minutes. Plus it was a PR.

Primary Focus:

It has been marathons just because that has been the races I signed up for.

Most Memorable Run:

I was chased by a very mean dog during the Great Lakes Relay. I had a moment where I just knew I was going to have to sacrifice my forearm to a dog bite. But I stopped running turned around and faced the dog. I yelled in my deepest voice “GO HOME!” “GO HOME!” The dog stopped, cocked his head and turned around and went home. I ran the rest of the leg as fast as I could.

"I can't run without...":

Having a bit of joy. No matter the run there is joy it might be that the run is over but there is always joy.

Motivation to Run:

Because today I can. Tomorrow is not guaranteed.

Favorite Run Location:

Beach in Sligo Ireland. There were fellow runners, walkers and horses.
