Running Highlights :  Started running in 2012 while losing weight with Weight Watchers to earn more activity points.  In September 2012, ran my first race: 2012 Race for the Cure 10K.  Happy with my results, I accepted my daughter Alix's invitation to run the 2013 Flying Pig Half Marathon together.  I joined Fleet Feet so that I would not embarrass either of us.  While training for the Flying Pig I learned a lot about running form and training so my speed increased throughout the year.

Favorite Training Method:  I would rather just run whatever the training schedule says; but, recently I learned the importance of having a strong core to minimize injuries.  I am working on doing more squats, sit-ups, and planks so I don't miss any more races due to injury.

Favorite Training Song: Most anything by ABBA

Noteable Awards: Being an AWESOME Mentor for other runners!

Say something John A!:  Fleet Feet has provided me with running knowledge (e.g. Good Form Running, and Active Isolated Stretching) in addition to providing a fun and challenging environment.  I have met so many positive people at Fleet Feet.  Fleet Feet and I come from the same city.  Do you know what city that is?
