Running is a big hobby of mine that often fills my evenings and weekends (and very occasionally my mornings). I first discovered my love for running in middle school when I joined the track & field team and started training for the 800m and 1600m distance events. Over a decade later, I am still running – and running farther. While I have never been the fastest out there in the field of participants, I enjoy pushing myself and finding my own limits.
Here is a short list of upcoming races that I have planned, as well as my best times for previous events. I’ve developed a preference for trail races over road races, so it’s likely you’ll see more of those on the list.
