After many years of unhealthy sedentary life, I threw away excuses, listened to my wife’s recommendation and started to walk. This was the start of a new journey that later I came to realize would never end. My first goal was to run a half marathon to completion. I started walking 6 miles almost every day and then gradually introduced one mile runs until completely running all 6. This set me up to successfully reach my goal. After a few halfs, I set a new goal, and that was to run a full marathon. This is when I joined USA FIT Katy. Here I was introduced to speed and hill work and learned many things regarding the sport of running. After completing my 6th marathon I became a Co-Head coach for the Full marathon group. This created a new goal for me and that was to help others train and successfully and safely go through their journey as well as meeting their goal of completing full marathon. After my seventh marathon 2019, Mark and I were asked to be Co-organizers of the USA FIT Katy. Even though my journey has been the same from many years, my goals have changed and now it is to help our coaches guide their members through their journey and to meet their goals. I have met and set bonds with some awesome runners at USA FIT Katy during these past years and I look forward in meeting many more.
