I started running competitively at the age of 12 when my soccer coach told me that I was better off without a ball at my feet! When I started racing track that year I had some success at the half mile and 1500m distances, but I wasn’t winning very many races. However, distance running was something that I started to enjoy because I felt that hard work in training could make up for any lack in talent or natural ability.
