Why do you run?


Running is a vehicle for inner exploration, a path to a better me and at the very least, a fitter me. I run because it makes me feel alive and connected the world. I run, because that’s who I am, I am a runner!

Each marathon gifts us with unique and memorable moments, each special in their own way. However, you always remember your first!

I enjoy using my fitness and love for running to help others achieve their goals and give back to the running community that has given me so much
