Mile: 4:52, 5k: 17:14, Half Marathon: 1:21:50, Marathon: 2:56:28
My 1:21:50 half marathon PR this past April, after I PR'd a marathon, an 8k and a 5k in the preceding 5 weeks.
Favorite Part of Running:
The daily grind and structure required to get better at the sport.
Motivation when Hurting During a Race or Workout:
Until I qualified for Boston, every time I hit a physical or mental wall, I would think of toeing the line at Boston and what it would it take for me to get there. Every mile, pushup, etc. was just another step toward that goal.
“When a person trains once, nothing happens. When a person forces himself to do a thing a hundred or a thousand times, then he certainly has developed in more ways than physical. Is it raining? That doesn't matter. Am I tired? That doesn't matter, either. Then willpower will be no problem." - Emil Zatopek
