From 5K’s to my first Marathon

On a personal note, I love event based physical challenges. Since my first 5k in 2006, my dabbling in sprint triathlons, 10 milers, half-marathons, Tough Mudder, and Ragnar Relay experiences, I love things that give me a challenge. Building is just one outlet for me, and the excitement and rush that I get from these […]
