Why/when did you start running? While I have run a few races including half marathons, I don’t really think of myself as a runner. I’ve been doing CrossFit since 2016 and running is part of the workouts.
What is your favorite aspect(s) of running? Running makes me stronger and a more complete athlete.
What excites you about being part of the RUNColumbus Race Series and Team? I’m using the RUNColumbus Race Series to add a little more running to my fitness training.
