I started running in 1997 as a means of managing stress at work and to lose some weight. My first experience with the Atlanta Track Club was to join and run on the Men’s Masters 100x1 Mile relay world record attempt which we set by beating the previous record held by the Houston Track Club. I love the competitive nature of racing and the camaraderie shared while racing and training.
