“Every morning in Africa, a gazelle wakes up, it knows it must outrun the fastest lion or it will be killed. Every morning in Africa, a lion wakes up. It knows it must run faster than the slowest gazelle, or it will starve. It doesn't matter whether you're the lion or a gazelle-when the sun comes up, you'd better be running.” 
― Christopher McDougall, Born to Run: A Hidden Tribe, Superathletes, and the Greatest Race the World Has Never Seen

Confession: I'm just another runner chasing early morning sunrises, fueled by craft beer and novelty doughnuts. Most weekends, you can find me racing in Virginia, Maryland, or the District. I've run a ton of races -- road and trail -- from 5ks to marathons with my sights set on a 50 miler later this year. I hope you'll follow along my running journey which seems to be perpetually marred by injuries and derailed by puppy snuggles.
