Interesting Story
I’m an AD officer in the U.S. Coast Guard and run 10 miles to work each day as part of my build-up. I typically have to fit in my mileage in between standing watch in the National CMD Center and my project management role. We also welcomed our daughter in December so running has been a bit of a challenge; thankfully, she’ll be able to join us in Orlando!
