Favorite place you have raced? My favorite two races were one with friends through Central Park & my first Marathon in Austin.

Favorite hobby? Reading nonfiction, drinking good Italian coffee, eating chocolate and yard work.

Favorite restaurant in Austin? Chez Zee & North Restaurants

How many running shoes do you usually rotate around? I know I have access to as many shoe options as I want but I prefer to stick to one model. I usually have about 8 pairs of that one model though!

Bio: I have lived in Austin since 1981. A friend introduced me to running in 1978 and it has been a favorite past time of mine ever since. I believe the key to a long and healthy life is to never stop moving and eat one piece of chocolate every day…at least!
