Jeff started his journey running in an attempt to become healthier, and after his first 5k he was hooked! That original 5k didn’t go so well, but that struggle just drove Jeff to work harder and set some goals!
Fast forward a couple years and couple more races (26 half marathons and 5 full marathons to be exact!), and running has become a normal and enjoyable part of life! Adding to that enjoyment would be the “race-cation” (that is definitely a thing!), which is Jeff’s preferred way to see a new travel destination.
He is now looking forward to his 3rd Rock Hall Half Marathon, which is one of his favorite races!
