How did you get started running? My boss at the time told me of his running group and I had been wanting to get more cardio so I decided to check the group out. I did my first 5K in August 2009 and My boss and two of his running buddies were there to help me run. I got hooked ever since

Favorite Track N Trail event: I love them all but it could be Star Wars tonight. So excited!
Favorite place to run: I’m still figuring that out since I’ve only been in AZ for 1 year but I do love San Tan.
