Welcome to first-year RUNColumbus teammate Dennis! Dennis says, “I want to use the series as motivation to get back into shape. I’ve found that I need an upcoming race as a reason to get out there and run during the week. I am just returning to running after a layoff of several years. I underwent radiation treatment earlier this year and am still trying to regain some stamina, but it’s been a slow road. I need something to help me focus, and I think the series will help with that. Right now I am pathetically slow and walk much more of a 5k than I run. I have no time goals, but just want to get to the point where I can jog a whole 5k again.”
Here are a few fun facts about Dennis:
How many years have you been running? Off and on for 43 years
What are your preferred running shoes? It varies, but I’ve been running in ASICS lately.
What’s your favorite pre-race meal or beverage? I don’t like to eat before a race.
What’s your favorite post-race meal or beverage? Pizza
What’s your favorite race distance? 5K
