How Long Have You Been With PRC?

I joined PRC in February 2018 when my daughter Melissa joined the learn to run.

What Made You Start Running?

Started running for fitness and staying active. Over the years my running was inconsistent up until I joined PRC. Since joining PRC my running has been consistent and I enjoy running more than ever.

What is your best/worst run?

I don’t know if I have a best or worse run. To me it's more about the finish line versus the finish time. One of my favorite runs was one we did as a family in Florida May 2018. It was a 5km run through Busch Gardens in the morning before the park opened.

Favorite running shoe?

My running shoe is the Asics Kayano. It works for me so I haven't tried others.

How do you track your runs?

I use a Garmin Vivo Active. Simple but does the job.

Do you have a current running goal?

My main goal is to be consistent with my running and not get injured.

Best training tip you can provide/received?

The best tip I received is to not increase intensity or distance too fast. You need to increase gradually to allow your body to adapt and will serve you well in the long run. Every run is a good run, even the ones that feel like a struggle.
