Dear Friends & Family,
I have never run a marathon. I grew up playing basketball, football and lacrosse, all of which required running - a downside to competing in the sports I loved. This perspective on running began to change during the Summer of 2011. I decided to start running, not as a punishment, but for actual fun. Soon after, I met Melissa during that same summer.
Melissa, on the other hand, had 8 marathons under her feet when we met. A track star throughout most of her life, she convinced me to up my mileage resulting in me running 3 half marathons between March and October of 2013. This was a real accomplishment and I thought, "Cool, I'm a half marathoner!"
