Favorite running quote: “Two things burn my ass…quitting a race and a flame about butt high.” Jack Shaw, WMU Track Coach

Best running advice given to me: Good racing prep is about balance:  speed, distance, weights and stretching.  Also, “Running is 90% mental and 10% physical.  Sharpen the 90% and the other 10% is easy.”

What is one thing your teammates would say about you?  “You used to be fast, right?”
