What is your biggest running accomplishment on the concrete?
My most memorable run happened after returning from a ankle injury and joining the crew on a NRC run thru the city. I received nothing but encouragement and motivation to continue on that 6 mile hill run.. and at mile 4 I sure did need it. As I was ready to give up, thanks to my CR Crew I finished. I may not be the fastest but learned not to give up.
Why do you run?
I started running to improve my personal well being. Running gives me the peace of mind I need, do to my busy lifestyle. I have become more aware of how good I feel when I set a new PR or run that extra mile. It has motivated my entire family to keep moving and even join me at marathons.
What inspires you?
My inspiration are my 3 kids Miguel 16, Cristo 11, and Jada age 8. I want to make sure that I'm around to see them achieve great things in life and encourage them to never quit. My mother a stage 3 Cancer patient who suffered from
Non-Hodgkins and is by the grace of God now in remission is also another of my greatest inspirations. She never gave in to her battle and is living proof that with support from family and friends and God all things can be accomplished in life.
