I’ve been running for some 37 years now, since I was a freshman in high school. I ran some OK times as a younger man including a 1:12:57 half marathon and 2:36:57 for the marathon. As a master I’ve run under 3 hours for the marathon a handful of times including a 2:59:43 at CIM in 2016 at age 49.
I’m planning on running the USATF National Club Cross Country Championships in Spokane On December 8th and then half marathon races in January and in early March. After that I plan to try to switch gears and run some shorter, faster races in the sing and summer and will probably look to run a ‘fast’ half marathon in the fall. No full marathons on my plate right now. I just plan to get healthy and hopefully run fast!
I am a fan of Blue Diamond because they make great products that are customized for runners around the world, but I’m an even bigger fan of the people behind the products.
Blue Diamond is a company founded by runners FOR runners. Ken and Nell and their family are all the most incredible hard working people. I love to hear them celebrating the accomplishments of the folks who buy their products, but I also love to hear the stories of how their company has grown over the years. They’ve become the official medal display suppliers for some very big races and that’s amazing to see. I know how hard they’ve all worked to get where they are today.
