When Did You Start Running? Just over four years ago.

Who Is Your Running Role Model? Who Has Influenced You Most In Running? I think if I had role models, they would be Tom and Joan Wascha. I grew up next door to them in Michigan, and while I wasn't much of a runner when I lived close to them, I took notice of their dedication to running at an early age. Now that I am running, it is fun to keep in touch with them and let them know of my progress. My running has been most influenced by the friends I run with. Ernie Moosa, Angela Passanise, Dave Coogan, and Pam Lewandowski (as well as many others) have served as training partners, motivators and encouragers.

What Is Your Favorite Workout? The ten mile course that the CTC members run every Saturday morning is a great workout and lots of fun.

Personal Info and Interests: I like running on the MKT trail and watch for birds and listen for frogs. I am beginning to get interested in triathlons, and have begun to swim and cycle. I also like to write creatively, read, and brew beer.
