Runner Bio

First interest in running and racing: encouragement from my P.E. teacher after running a sub-six minute mile in 6th grade coupled with my big sister running cross country that same school year, 1996-97

First 5k: Smithfield City’s Celebration “Health Days” Saturday 5k fun-run 1997. Thought I was going to die.
Ran xcountry and track all four years of high school, 1999-2003

Track events: 800m, medley relay, 1600m and 3200m

  1. Congrats on a great time for your race. Good luck with your Marathon training. I start mine next week using one of Hal’s plans as well but I might be reinknithg it. Running 4 days a week is hard for me. I think I’d rather squeeze in an extra cross-training session on the Wednesday. Good luck.
