Personal Bio:

After graduating from college, I found my passion for running, which has since become an integral part of my life.  It all began with a 5K race, a humble starting point that ignited my love for the sport. Gradually, I pushed my limits, progressing from 10K races to conquering the challenge of a half marathons. 

At the age of 26, I embarked on a significant milestone by running my first marathon – an experience that proved to be both demanding and immensely rewarding.  Since then, my dedication to running has only grown stronger, fueling my determination to continually push myself beyond boundaries and explore new running goals and challenges.  Running has not just become a hobby; it’s a source of inspiration, discipline, and a constant journey of self-improvement that I am thrilled to continue pursuing relentlessly.
