congratulations to member of the Month
It was a challenge like no other I’ve done! I never thought I could run one marathon and now I’ve run around the world.
How many marathons have you run?
I have run 31 full marathons.
They have all been memorable for various reasons. Obviously, Boston is at the top because it’s Boston and I ran it in memory of my Mom and Dad. Antarctica would have to be up there too…with the weather conditions and the fact it was the last of my seven continents in order for me to achieve my Seven Continents Club Finishers Medal…it was an amazing journey.
Running allows you to clear your thoughts and reflect on recent events…while at the same time running with some great people in my wonderful running club - Phoenix! Travelling allows you to see the world and in my case, meet some amazing and wonderful people. My good friends Karen and Mark have traveled and run with me for more than half of my seven continents!
What word would you use to describe yourself?
What words of advice would you give to someone who is training for their first marathon?
Go slow, listen to your body and be determined and dedicated towards your goal…and enjoy very minute of your run!
