When and why did you start running?
I started running as a way to get healthier and lose weight in 2014. I did not mind running and kept doing it. Then I ran a 5k and 10k with a friend who was my first guide. I really enjoyed getting outside, competing and finishing a race.
Is there a figure in your life that inspires you to keep on running?
Not really. To be honest, this is a totally selfish endeavor and I keep running because I enjoy it.
Where is your favorite place to run?
On the beach. Always feels good and the sand is much more forgiving than a road or sidewalk.
What was your toughest race?
Any race, which are most, that start in the dark. I have a little bit of central eyesight, but it is negated at night. Add a crowd at the starting line and it is always tough.
What has been your biggest obstacle getting to this point in your running career, and what was the motivation to get over the hump?
Finding folks to train and run with me on a regular basis. It has been easier to find people to guide in races. I overcome the training guides by doing more treadmill sessions or going to a known obstacle outdoor location.
