About Me

Hi, I’m E.J. Valinski.  From age 1-14, I was known for being an especially ugly child.  Not much has changed.  I ran my first competitive race back in 2010 (in July, in Arizona no less) and enjoyed the entire experience from the cramped up start line to the endless deluge of sweat during to the pile of mushy bananas at the end.  I liked it so much I eventually found a niche in convincing others to do the same and that’s how I got into grassroots marketing.  I’ve been with Competitor Group since 2012 and have met a lot of great people along the way.

I like good comedies, bad photography and hot pizza.

You can find me on the Facebook, so feel free to stop by and post a comment, tell me a secret or share a recipe.

Why Do You Rock?

I totally rock because anyone who runs with me ends up looking like Steve Prefontaine.  Ok, so I’m not really THAT slow.  I’m an average runner who relates to all of the other average runners out there.  Will I ever win a race outright?  Probably not.  But I’ll inspire you to get out there and go.  If I can run and finish a marathon then there’s a good chunk of people out there that can too.
