Growing up my Dad would take me to 5K races. I would jog along with him and somehow come home with hardware. It wasn’t that I was fast, it was the 80’s and 90’s and not many parents were dragging their kids to races. I ran cross country and track in high school, though not incredibly fast, and during my freshman year of college I ran my first marathon. I finished with a guy who told me that he had just finished his 14th marathon and I wondered if I would ever be able to run 14 marathons. I completed 11 sanctioned marathons before graduating to ultramarathons, then I started running marathons for training, even running at least a marathon every month for 2 years. The distances continued to grow and now I’ve finished two 100 mile endurance races.
