A quotation you like…

"Far better it is to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure... than to rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy nor suffer much, because they live in a gray twilight that knows not victory nor defeat."
Theodore Roosevelt


Why do you run?


I started running around 3 years ago and it has become a major part of my life.  Having the ability to let your feet carry you to incredible places any time you want is unique to this sport.

While I don’t run many road races, I love running long distances.  Let’s get to the finish in good spirits and remember how fortunate we are to have the ability to run!

Slow down at the beginning! Just run your race and you’ll achieve your goals while enjoying yourself a lot more along the way.
