I started running in 2002 when I found out that my diving buddy likes running, and I was looking for endurance sport. I like challenges and found many new friends through running. I started running marathons with my running buddy – I ran 46 marathons so far (also 1 x 50K and 38 half marathons). In 2009 I paced San Francisco Marathin for the first time, since then I got my running buddies (RunningAddicts) into pacing, and we paced about 10 marathins do far (5 of them in 2011). This year (2011) I paticipated as a coach in the San Franciso Training Program (South Bay). My favorite run is TheRelay – I’m the captain of Running Anonymous Relay team since 2005 (and since 2009 we are also running Lake Tahoe Relay). The highlight bof my running career will be next year (2012) when I’ll run Boston Marathon for the first time.
