I’ve been fortunate that my best friend is a runner.  She talked me into running as I continued to fail to lose my extra 15 pounds. I look back and I’ve been running for about 12 years and have raced close to 60 times.

I did lose the 15 by the way – though they sometimes attempt to visit me from time to time.  I used to race for time/speed but as I’m getting older it’s been a mix of time and running for fun.

I have volunteered at a couple races and quickly came to see how much work is involved and how key volunteers are.  I love the vibe of a race and the Snohomish Running Company is all about putting the runner first.  I’m excited to be helping out for another year.
