Running Highlights

As a 27 year-old, I have now ran 68 marathons where 32 marathons have been Boston Qualifiers and 45 marathons have been sub-4 hour finishes in the past 13 years I have been running. In 2011, I competed in 38 races while earning PRs in a variety of distances such as the half marathon at 1:26:45, marathon at 3:20:04, and Ironman at 12:34:08. I have also completed triathlons from Olympic, half Ironman, to 3 full Ironmans in the past three years. I an my first marathon as a 14 year-old with minimal support and training except with a great deal of desire to reach for a goal: complete a marathon as a Freshman during my first year of running. It was by far one of the most memorable experiences of my life which is why I choose to share my running passion with my family and friends to hopefully inspire others to follow their passions as well as give back to the community by coaching our inner-city youth in the Los Angeles area to also experience their first marathon at the 2012 Los Angeles Marathon, where dreams become a reality.
