Running Background: Due to multiple issues I have walked the majority of the events I have participated in. I have complete 3 half marathons by walking and many 5K and Tri events all walking.
What are you hoping to gain from your experience as a Local Joe?: My biggest goal is to run at this year’s event! I love the Prairie Fire Marathon experience both in the volunteer opportunities and the actual race! I hope to inspire those who are beginners in their journey to strive for their dreams!
What is your biggest fear about being a Local Joe?: That I will let those around me down in some way, by not reaching my goal…or that I don’t figure out the social media aspects.
Favorite Workout Tune: Have to figure this out yet!!
