Location: Klamath Falls, Oregon
Running: 13.1

I’ve been at this running thing and poor ensemble choice for about 6 years now. It all started when I needed to find that happy place that people have always talked about. So one day while shopping, I was in the magazine section and this running magazine caught my eye. Acting like a kid that just got his first book from the Scholastic book fair, I went home and read the magazine cover to cover multiple times while highlighting and dog-earring pages that would inspire me to test this body that was given to me. Thanks to the running I have done over the years, it has allowed me to make some wonderful friends, see some amazing places, and also meet the love of my life at a local running event here in Klamath Falls. My wonderfully supportive children, as well as my family, keep me driven to continually push myself. I couldn’t have asked for a better support system, which in return has allowed me to give all that I can and try to lead by example. In time, I will be crossing that line on Boylston Street and I will have the running community as well as my friends and family to thank for their support on this journey of mine.
