Most Memorable Running Experience?  Convincing a friend to run outside with me, who always loathed running inside, and seeing the excitement in their eyes when they told me how much fun running outside really is.
Why do you volunteer with the Running Club?  I would like to give back to the community using the skills I have developed in my professional life for the benefit of others.
What does running mean to you?  It provides the peace and tranquility that we so often miss in our daily lives.
