I started distance running about five years ago as I was looking for a healthy stress reliever from my daily grind. I purchased a pair of running sneakers, downloaded a free training plan, and never looked back. In these five years I completed 7 half-marathons, numerous 8k and 5k road races. I completed my first marathon in March 2019 in 4:23, and even though I bonked at mile 18 from improper fueling, I fell in love with the distance. I fine-tuned my custom Infinit Marathon blend with the help of the nutritionists at Infinit in order to power me through all 26.2 miles. I’m excited to say that I completed the Marine Corp Marathon on October 27, 2019, with a 5 min PR!! I completed the Newport News - One City Marathon on March 1, 2020 with a 13 minute PR taking me to 4:05.
Who would have ever thought that my March marathon would be my only marathon in 2020. I'm finishing out the year with a focus on shorter races and speed work. Looking forward to racing in 2021.
