“Run Strong. Finish Stronger.” It works for running, it works for life. Keep on doing something, then do it better.

Why do you run?

It’s a great way for me to find balance. If my mind is all over the place, I know I can throw on my shoes and just run. I can use the time to forget about everything or I can use the time to think through a problem. You can work a lot of things out in your mind running for a couple hours.

Favorite place to run:

In a new city. I love exploring new cities on foot and just making turns at any corner to see where it will take you. I’ve come across beautiful parks, ran across amazing bridges and seen things that I would have never discovered if I didn’t go for run-tour.

Running gear you can not live without:

Accessories. I love the little things like running gloves, arm sleeves, compression socks, glasses, hats. The little “spice” that can be added to any run.

When not running where would we find you?

Playing with my daughter or people-watching with my wife. If I’m not running, I’m spending time with the lovely ladies in my life.

Favorite post race fuel:

Mexican food. Chips, salsa, beer, nachos, burritos, tacos, all of it.

Turn Down For What!
