Jerry Garcia

I got into running after I found out how tough running 26.2 miles was. I got my butt kicked at the 2009 Pasadena Marathon I went in with little to none training and thought I could wing it. Ever since then I’ve been hooked year after year focusing on getting stronger and faster. It’s given me a whole new life. One that I’ve never would’ve dreamed of. I love to race but also love to train hard.
