Running is an important part of my life. Not only is it great exercise, it allows me to challenge myself. Running early in the morning or late in the evening also gives me peace of mind.
I began running after completing my first triathlon. At the time, I wanted to do whatever was necessary to keep my body and mind in peak condition.
My first marathon was the 2006 New York Marathon, which I completed in 3:52. I haven’t looked back.
So far, I’ve run in more than 30 marathons and my best time is 3:19. I once ran 5 marathons over the course of 55 days. Despite my hectic schedule around launching a new company, I still plan to run 12 marathons in 2012.
