Personal Background
I began running competitively in 6th grade, but I had been playing organized sports for years prior to that. At 18 years old, I qualified for and ran my first Boston Marathon. I have now requalified and run it two more times (5 year increments), with a personal best of 3 hours in the 2018 weather monstrosity. I recently ended a running streak of over 3 years. I am a certified personal trainer and firmly believe that strength training is crucial for all of my running clients.
