I began running in high school because many of my friends did it as a way to have fun. It is a competitive sport and it’s exciting to see new personal bests. The biggest reason I’m continuing after college is to reach new personal bests. I would love to run under 1:50.00 for 800m and a sub-4:00 mile within the next 3 years. Joining Kansas City Smoke would provide a large number of racing opportunities and allow me to continue being competitive in the sport I love. I’ve raced many people from Smoke in the last 4 years of college and have always been impressed by the friendliness, work-ethic and positive attitude that each member has.
