Why do you run?

 

There’s a very fine line between ‘hobby’ and ‘mental illness’

There’s just nothing like seeing someone meet or even better exceed their goals.

Tell us your best pacing experience.

 

In 2011 I ran the New Orleans Mardi Gras Marathon withUltra Marathon Runner Scott Jurek as my pacer…unbelievable experience!  Ask me about it the next time we run.
