Name: Justin Murphy
Family Status: Married to My wife Katie for 11 years. 1 son Tyler (9) and 1 daughter Aubrey (6)
Occupation: Environmental Scientist at iSi Environmental and I am a Guardsman as a Bioenvironmental Engineering Craftsman for the Kansas Air National Guard.
Running Background: I used to run in high school (small town 5Ks). I took a 15 year break, outside of required USAF running. Started seriously running again in 2013 and wanted to run the PFM, last fall, but I wasn’t ready and my training failed.
What are you hoping to gain from your experience as a Local Joe?: I want to prove to myself, after the failure from last year, that I can complete a marathon.
What is your biggest fear about being a Local Joe?: Not being able to finish the marathon due to an unforeseen circumstance in a very public forum.
Favorite Workout Tune: It changes almost daily. But right now I like “The Pretender” by the Foo Fighters
