|Why do I run:
Improve race times and optimize performance on low miles. Because of a child hood lawn mower accident, my miles need to be limited to 30 or less per weeK. I am competitive and enjoy racing. Also, my passion is to keep myself and other runners injury free with smart training techniques.
|Why I started running:
I started lifting weights at age 10 and fitness was always in my blood. After my degree in exercise physiology, I had to get in CV and running shape for my fitness career in the late 80s. Once I entered a 5K and did well, I was hooked and still am.
