Runner: Jeff K

Years Running: 9

Age: 47

Upcoming races: Chuckanut 50K, ragnar luckenbach, Canyons 100K, White River. Cougar Trail run series. Likely other local road and trail races in 2017

Current goals: Would like to be able to run a marathon faster than I did in 2011.   I am also hopeful to set PRs at Chuckanut and White River.

Long-term, big shot goals that you someday hope to achieve with running:  I’d like to maintain consistent with running and retain the competitive spirit.  I hope it helps me to stay healthy and live a long life.

Tell us about your running accomplishment that you’re most proud of and why:  There are a couple at both ends of the distance spectrum:  I ran a 17:01 5K when I was 41 and I thought I really pushed myself hard in that race. The Miwok 100K was memorable, not because I had a fantastic time, but I was able to pass many runners in the final 15  miles so I thought I really managed that race well, and was able to overcome  fatigue in the end.

Favorite part about being a runner:  Pushing the limit of what my body can do and I find a personal connection with doing that. I also enjoy the competitiveness and camaraderie that goes along with road and trail racing.

Best races: Mercer Island ½ Marathon 2011, Portland Marathon 2011,  White River 2014, Baker Lake 50K 2016.      

Running words of wisdom: Run your own race, stick to your plan, and forget about what everyone else is doing.
