My wife, Stef, also runs marathons competitively for the BAA. Our daughter (Olive) is 6. She is not so interested in running, but loves gymnastics and spends a large percentage of her time upside down.
In running, I am proud of my consistency over the last two decades. As one example, I have run under 15:00 in the 5K for 17 consecutive years. Outside of running, making it through the slog of a PhD program is an accomplishment!
Despite living in a city with a wealth of running routes, I do the majority of my workouts on a 0.73-mile loop around Harvard Stadium. I also raced a marathon around a 200m indoor track (~211 laps).

My first Boston Marathon (2014). The history and fan support along the entire course is unparalleled in my opinion.
