FROM: Columbus

OCCUPATION: Landscaper and student at Ivy Tech Community College — Columbus

WHY I RUN: I started running back in high school but never competitively. I was feeling sluggish and lazy after school and on the weekends, but I didn’t have the cash for a gym membership. Since I started running, however, I have so much more energy. I started getting into races last year when I completed the Hoosiers Outrun Cancer 5K in Bloomington in memory of my dad, and the whole atmosphere just stuck. I’m training for the Mill Race Half Marathon, but first I need to work through some problems with my knee.

SHOES: Salomon Speedcross

FAVORITE SONG TO RUN TO: “Start Me Up” by The Rolling Stones
