I started distance running in 1998 when I ran my first Boston Marathon. My father introduced me to running when I was 8 years old and I will never forget running my first mile with him on the track at Texas Southern University in Houston, Texas. I’ve been hooked ever since!
I completed my first Boston Marathon in 1998 and I have completed 11 Boston Marathons. Currently training for my 12th!
What excites me most about running is the tremendous sense of accomplishment and the complete feeling of euphoria I get no matter how tough the course! I am also very proud that I just completed Disney’s Dopey Challenge last month! 48.6 miles in 4 days. It was my 18th marathon and my 20 year old daughter’s very first! I love running with her! She’s helping me train for Boston right now!
For anyone running Boston for the first time, the best piece of advice I can give is to just enjoy every single mile and treasure any new friendships you make on the course! I have made life long friends training for and running the Boston Marathon. It’s truly an unforgettable experience!
