My running career started when… 

I decided to run a 5K for a challenge in December 2014.

I joined Atlanta Track Club because… 

I wanted a guaranteed AJC Peachtree Road Race entry and then within my first month, I ran my first free race. 

My most memorable running experience was...

 The 2017 PNC Atlanta 10 Miler.  The cheer stations were huge in getting me through that race, especially the back half with the hills.

My craziest running story/moment was...

 It may be the fact that I ran the 2016 Rise Up and Run 5K/Walk Like MADD with a stress fracture in my foot.

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

It's so much more than guaranteed Peachtree entry.  There are so many other races that are fun to run!

I run (to/for/because)… 

To show how strong I can be.
