Favorite Running Memory
I recently moved to Colorado Springs to train for the marathon. I got a job at Beacon Building Products and worked 50 hours a week to afford living on my own. I woke up around 4:45 a.m. to get my first run in, went to work from 7 a.m.-5p.m., then ran again after work. I averaged 85-100 miles a week leading up to my debut marathon in Indianapolis and was able to qualify for the Trials.
