How did you get into running?

Running has opened a whole new and fulfilling world to me.

Greatest running achievement

My greatest accomplishment is completing the LA/SF Challenge. I completed the Los Angeles Marathon and the San Francisco Marathon this year. I set a PR at San Francisco. It was the most difficult course I’ve encountered but my determination pushed me all the way to the finish line.
