Tim Moran - DWRunning

DWRunning Tenure:

Joined in November 2015

PRs:

5k: 19:00, Half Marathon: 1:26:52, Marathon: 3:05:50

Primary Focus:

Half Marathon/Marathon

Long-Term Running Goals:

To run a marathon with my son some day. He may like running, he may not, but hopefully somewhere down the road, many, many years from now, we can run a race together.

Inspiration:

It's a cliche, but the elites. When I'm ready to get psyched for a race, I check out old races on YouTube. Want to run fast? Watch Daniel Komen's 3k World Record

Required Read:

"Into Thin Air" by John Krakauer. I first read it in high school and have probably read it cover to cover about five times. It's an amazing true story about human survival.

Guiding Quote:

"Everybody has a plan until they get punched in the mouth." - Mike Tyson. This applies to so much in life, not just running.

Best Running Story:

I once out kicked Bob Kennedy in a 1500m. It was at his running camp, and he was making sure to stay a stride ahead of everyone, but I swung wide into lane 4 off the final curve, and was out of his peripheral vision. I passed him in the last 5m, and we were already across the finish line when he noticed. It wasn't a real race, but I still blew past a 12:58 guy.

Favorite UA Product:

UA Tech V-Neck T-shirts. They're great to run in and comfy to sit on the couch in. They handle sweat, baby drool, dog licks, everything.
