I’m a long-time runner who’s been actively involved with MDRA for probably 12 years or more. I’ve written numerous articles for RunMinnesota over the years and last Spring I coached the Spring Marathon training class. I was very fortunate to find running as a kid and running has always been “play” for me. I like to say I run all the time, but I’ve never exercised a day in my life. I probably think about running more than 1 person should in their lifetime and I’m always thinking of ways to share it with others.
I’m passionate about all things running in Minnesota; roads, trails, track, youth, elites, newbies, etc. I’ve coached youth cross country for the past 9 years and served on the Eastview Athletic Associations board of directors for 1 year. I volunteered with TCM 1 year, writing their press releases and I’ve been fortunate to present the USATF Runner of the Year awards in 2 of the last 3 years.
