My running career started when…

I was in middle school.  We had a race in PE and I came in second and loved it. 

I joined Atlanta Track Club because…

I wanted guaranteed entry into the Peachtree. 

My most memorable running experience was...

Running the TCS New York City Marathon. 

My craziest running story/moment was...

When I was in New York for the marathon, I went to the Regis and Kathie Lee show.  They asked the audience who was running the marathon and since I was they talked to me on camera.  Unfortunately, no one in Atlanta saw it because it was preempted by the pandas arriving at the zoo. 

The one thing I want everyone to know about Atlanta Track Club...

The running community is so supportive and encouraging.  Everyone involved in running is so awesome.   

I run (to/for/because)…

I can!
