As a result of peer pressure, I started running while living down in Houston, TX back in 2007. Started with a 5K and a couple of 5-milers and quickly got hooked. Once I moved back to NC in 2008, I joined a half marathon training group through Off ‘n’ Running with Marisa (Pirih) Carter and met some awesome people along the way. The 2008 Cannonball Half Marathon was my first and I’ve run 8 more since then. I have 2 painful full marathons under my belt (’10 Marine Corps & ’11 Chicago) and I’m aiming for my third with the Woo Hoo Crew in December ’12.
