Running Blogs

Running is certainly a passion of mine.

I ran my first race at age 16. It was a July 4th one-mile fun run, and I ran it with my dad.

Something about running really clicked with me, so I decided to run track during my senior year of high school.

I’ve been a runner ever since, and hopefully I’ll be a runner for life.
