6. Do you have one favorite app to track your runs?
I always carry my iPhone so I use the Nike+ app for distance.  In races, I wear my Garmin to keep track of time and pace.

it’s old and big but I love it

7. Who is your favorite running partner?

Me.

I usually run by myself out of convenience.

But I do enjoy running with some women (Barbara & Judy) whom I have met online. That reminds me that I should schedule some runs with them soon.

8. What races have you ran so far this year?
18 race so far:

9. If you had to give someone one piece of advice about running what would it be?
If you’re just starting out, don’t try to run too fast too soon. Don’t give up. You will get faster. Believe in yourself.  No matter what your finish time is, you area winner.

10.  Describe your relationship with running in one word:
Perseverance.

No matter what, I don’t plan to give up.

  2. Your race list for what you have run so far, is bigger than my whole running career lol
    I run because it makes me stronger and accomplished and content. It’s my hormone replacement therapy 😉
