Delaware State Representative - Ray Christensen
I started running in 2002 with Arthritis Foundation’s fundraising program and actually ran 3 marathons before my first 5K. Training with a group made the effort more fun and I was happy to stumble upon a newly formed weekly group run that has continued ever since. As a self-employed website designer, I’ve built sites for my own events, the informal group, and Pike Creek Valley Running Club – which I became President of in 2010 (www.pcvrc.com). Besides running all distances from 5K to 26.2 miles (including Boston), I’ve enjoyed “giving back to the sport” by volunteering at events, becoming a race director (www.NunRun5k.org), and even writing an eBook on “How to Start a Running Club.”
Another web project is a nationwide running club & race directory. I invite anyone to add their club or event(s) to www.RunningMyRaces.com for free publicity. I’ve made many good friends and shared so many interesting experiences through running, including group trips to marathons in Anchorage, Paris, Boston, Nashville, and Disneyworld. It’s satisfying to invite new people to take part in group activities which make training more fun and goals easier to accomplish.
